Turriff is a small town and agricultural centre 9 miles south of Macduff in north Aberdeenshire.
Established more than nine centuries ago, the town is situated in an elevated position at 166 ft above sea level and its main characteristic features are the red sandstone houses which are abundant here. The site today known as ‘Temple Brae’ is said to have been the base for the Knights Templar. Turriff is also the place to witness the first serious bloodshed of the Civil War in 1639 when the Covenanters and the Royalists forces clashed.
The largest annual event to be held in Aberdeenshire, the Turriff Show promotes Scotland’s agriculture and food industry. Explore the variety of things to see and do including over 250 trade stands, cookery demonstrations and a funfair.
