  • Great museum. First-class catering. Excellent second-hand bookshop.
  • Walking from nearby Friars Carse where Burns wrote in the bothy/hermitage to reach the farm was a delight via woods,fields & along the banks of the Nith . At Ellisland the curator welcomed us warmly & was a mine of information & most helpful. I would recomend this to anyone .

Where to stay in Dumfries

As Dumfries is just a small city within the Dumfries and Galloway region, the city itself is somewhat limited on places to stay. You'll find a handful of mid-range to high-end hotels in the city--if you're intent on being based in Dumfries, it's best to book early to avoid disappointment. Otherwise, there are plenty of options in nearby cities and towns such as Sanquhar, Lockerbie, Auchencairn, and Thornhill.
