Welcome to the Dufftown Community website
We’ve created this website with the community and for the community, to provide a transparent platform to co-ordinate activity and support future community developments. Find out more about our heritage and vision below.
Dufftown of the past
Was a industrious town, with a dominance of quarries, distilleries and supporting businesses.
While still built upon its numerous distilleries, Dufftown has a significant tourism industry built upon whisky and diversifying to meet the needs of the next generation of tourists.
As Dufftown transitions into THE destination for Scotch whisky in Scotland, the economy will continue to grow, accommodating more non-whisky tourism and a flurishing centre of outdoor activities.
