The Auldgirth Inn




Step inside and it’s hard at first to reconcile age with the plush 21st century inn.

Comfortably cosy, its warm, welcoming ambiance mingles with five centuries of history stacked up within the walls. Sit by the lounge bar inglenook and share a space once occupied by Rabbie Burns as he sheltered against winter’s icy blast.

Six luxury rooms, whose tasteful decor reflects the overall ambience of the Inn, are designed to the highest of modern country character standards offering comfort and relaxation.



Enjoy a delicious meal in the spacious dining area where you can watch talented chefs as they busily prepare a wide range of mouth-watering dishes mainly from healthy local Scottish produce.

And why not retire to one of the beautifully furnished bedrooms for a relaxing night’s rest.

It comes as no surprise that the Auldgirth Inn is already wracking up awards after undergoing its first major modernisation since 1804.
And that’s down to new owner, award winning restaurateur and chef Robert Macaleese.

McMurdoston House

Conveniently and peacefully situated between Dumfries (15 minutes) and Thornhill (20 minutes), McMurdoston House offers comfortable, warm and welcoming accommodation for visitors to this lovely, but largely undiscovered, area of Dumfries & Galloway in Scotland.

Originally dating from 1540 our historic ex-farmhouse was extended in 1922 and provides a perfect get-away from the hustle and bustle of the 21st century.

Open all year round, McMurdoston is a paradise for wildlife and our main aim is to offer a haven for our human visitors too. We have two newly-converted self-catering cottages, each capable of sleeping four, and ideal as bases from which to explore the area.
