Duff House in Banff 'could close over winter'
One of Aberdeenshire's most famous tourist attractions could shut its doors over the winter as part of plans by the local authority.
The gallery, museum and arts centre at Duff House in Banff currently runs all year round but is losing money.
It is run by the council, Historic Scotland and the National Galleries of Scotland.
A staff consultation has been launched which could see the attraction instead offer "enhanced services" in summer.
Aberdeenshire Council said the move could save £88,000 a year.
The staff consultation ends on 7 September.
