    Absolutely fantastic visit to The Devil's Porridge this afternoon, a wonderful 5-star attraction based in Eastriggs. We were given a lovely welcome by staff and volunteers, and were gripped by the wealth of fascinating artefacts on display.

    We've enjoyed some great times here in the past, and each visit yields something new. We'll be sure to return soon!

    Please take a trip to The Devil's Porridge and discover amazing history and heritage at every turn!

    A huge thank you to the team for their passion, warmth and superb knowledge, it was a joy to spend the afternoon with you! :)
