Duff House, Banff
From 1913 to 1923, Duff House was used as a private hospital for the scientific investigation and treatment of internal diseases.
The Duff House Sanatorium offered specialist treatment for various stomach complaints and related illnesses including emaciation, heart and arterial diseases, the nervous system, lung disease and anaemia. During its time at Duff House, the Senior Physician, Dr Edmund Spriggs (1871-1949) conducted pioneering research of the then relatively unknown condition, diabetes.
Private patients paid between 15 to 30 guineas per week for the specialist care and attention that included diagnosis and a controlled diet. Food was central to the treatment patients received at Duff House and the fruit and vegetables necessary for the regulation of a healthy regime were all grown on the estate.
The house was ideal because of its natural setting close to the sea and the grounds which provided fresh air and exercise. The fact that patients could also easily reach Banff by train was also an added attraction.
