Banffshire is a small traditional county in the north of Scotland. The traditional county town is Banff. It borders the Moray Firth to the north, Morayshire and Inverness-shire to the west, and Aberdeenshire to the south. Before 1891, there were various exclaves of the county which were locally situated in Aberdeenshire, the biggest being the parish and village of St. Fergus . From 1974 to 1996, the county formed part of Grampian Region. The area the county covers is currently split for administrative purposes between Moray council and Aberdeenshire council.
Banffshire is currently used as a registration county for property, and a Lieutenancy Area.
