Historic Site Tourist Spot
Tour Old Bridge House Museum, the oldest house in Dumfries--a diminutive site that packs a wallop with its huge collection of old artifacts. Dating back to 1660, the house was built into a sandstone bridge, which has helped it survive to this day. Tour guides will tell you all about the family kitchen, nursery, and Victorian bedroom, all still kept in 19th-century style. Other rooms are dedicated to other artifacts of the era, including an old dentist office.

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.
