The Hotel

Set in a 45-acre Dumfriesshire estate, including woodland extending down to the banks of the River Nith, this country house hotel offers guests a warm welcome.

It has a magnificent panelled entrance hall and elegant staircase, a well-furnished spacious lounge with views over the garden and river, a comfortable bar and a panelled snooker room with a full-sized table.

The hotel’s riverside setting and historic atmosphere make it a truly memorable wedding venue, and its private fishing beat provides angling in season. In fact, Friars Carse is a great place for a leisure break for anyone who likes the outdoors in friendly surroundings. These estate has a long and interesting history. Scotland’s Bard Robert Burns was once a frequent visitor, and you can follow Burns’ footsteps with a visit to our Hermitage. There are also self-catering cottages within its grounds. Our Nith Tearoom and Whistle Restaurant serve Afternoon teas and superb contemporary Scottish cuisine using local produce in season.
