Constructed between 1735 and 1739 by the architect William Adam for William Duff of Braco, later Earl Fife, Duff House has been in turn a ducal residence, hotel, sanitorium, prisoner of war camp, and is now the principal out-station of the National Galleries of Scotland. Duff House contains a fine collection of paintings, furniture, tapestries and artefacts. There are portraits by Allan Ramsay, Sir Henry Raeburn, an El Greco and paintings from Italy, the Netherlands and Germany. There are three pieces of Chippendale furniture designed by Robert Adam and a superb set of gilt chairs of the French Empire period.
