Knockinaam Lodge Hotel is a delightful luxury boutique hotel – one of Scotland’s finest small hotels. It is situated at the South West tip of Scotland, only 20 miles from the most Southerly Point, yet only two hours drive from Glasgow.

Our guests are welcomed to the cove with stunning views across to Northern Ireland, encompassed by 30 acres of garden with manicured lawns, which run down to a private beach.

Knockinaam Lodge is a wonderful hideaway with a warm inviting feel of a small country house. With friendly and attentive staff who pride themselves on bespoke service.

We have 10 wonderful bedrooms, five of these have spectacular sea views and one is a two bedroom family suite.  All our bedrooms have their own individual personalities blending the traditional building with modern comforts.  Each room is complimented by those special little touches making it a real “home away from home”.

Few small country house hotels in Dumfries and Galloway, indeed in Scotland, can match the array of awards possessed by Knockinaam Lodge Hotel – 3 AA rosettes, 5 gold stars Restaurant with rooms, & Taste our Award.

History abounds at Knockinaam Lodge, built in 1869 as a hunting lodge, this is also the site for a secret meeting between Sir Winston Churchill, General Eisenhower and their Chief of Staff during the Second World War & also inspired John Buchan while he was penning the 39 Steps.

This is an excellent place to celebrate special occasions, whether for one room or the whole house exclusively.  We are able to offer accommodation for up to 20 guests and seat up to 24 on one large table in the restaurant.  Everyone loves a “House Party”  What a way to create memories.

Seasonal Breaks are planned throughout the year, check out
