About the Aquarium

With over 800 km of coastline and a vast expanse of sea extending from Fraserburgh in the East, right out to Duncansby Head, by John o’ Groats, in the North, the Moray Firth has an amazing wealth of marine habitats – from sheltered estuaries and exposed rocky shores out to kelp reefs and the muddy sea floor.

The Moray Firth is a haven for wildlife and at Macduff Marine Aquarium you will come face to face with all kinds of sea creatures that live beneath the steely blue Moray Firth waters.

The aquarium’s exhibits lead you from the coast, where you can explore the estuaries and the rocky shores, and then to the underwater world of the kelp reef. At the sea lab and touch pools you can get a feel for seashore life, before heading out to the deep reef and the seafloor.
