Heart-warming and homely, The Nithsdale Hotel is a family-run establishment tucked away in the old town of Sanquhar. The hotel invites guests to put their feet up in one of 12 en suite rooms, before being roused from their morning slumbers with a cooked breakfast and a freshly brewed beverage or two. Adorned with wooden furnishings and exposed beams, the recently renovated Oasis Restaurant warms the cockles of the heart with traditional Scottish fare including steak pies, haggis-stuffed chicken, and Sunday roasts with all the trimmings. Those with a thirst for adventure can take advantage of the walking and cycling routes and fishing spots in the area, with information available at the hotel’s reception.
Crossing the road from the hotel, set foot inside the Sanquhar Tolbooth Museum to discover the town’s knitting heritage and hear the story of the local mines and miners. Celebrate Scottish literature and head to Burns House in Dumfries, around 40 minutes’ drive away, to see the home where the poet spent the last years of his life, filled with his various possessions, manuscripts, and letters. If visiting Dumfries, broaden your horizons further by paying a visit to the nearby 13th century ruins of Caerlaverock Castle and the remains of the Cistercian Sweetheart Abbey, both sitting against a postcard-worthy backdrop of rural Scotland.
