Luxury accommodation at the AULDGIRTH INN

Due to current restrictions our opening hours are varied. Please contact us for confirmation

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.

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.


Rab, as he is known, has built up a considerable reputation for running  restaurants where quality, taste, originality, variety and value for money are a trademark. Just ask the regular customers at Little Italy in nearby Dumfries.

Now Rab has widened his sights and bought the Auldgirth Inn, a B listed building of great character and antiquity, that stands off the A76 trunk road a ten minute drive north from Dumfries.

Fancy enjoying a unique
Scottish welcome to 2024?
