The Dunbar Family
A new age for Duffus Estate
In August 2017 the family, and Duffus House, entered a new phase in its history as our lease to Gordonstoun finished.
People, specifically our staff and guests, are at the core of our business and we want both to feel valued and happy.
Moving with the times, Sir Edward Dunbar and Lady Caroline Dunbar are keen to minimise the Estate’s environmental impact and manage the land to encourage the local flora and fauna to thrive
