Fodor's Review

Across the river in Banff's twin town, Macduff, on the shore east of the harbor, stands the conical Macduff Marine Aquarium. A 250,000-gallon central tank and many smaller display areas and touch pools show the sea life of the Moray Firth and North Atlantic. The staff is knowledgeable and engaging, especially with children, and there's always some creature to touch in the shallow pool or being fed by divers.
