The Craigdarroch Arms

Just under an hour's drive from Dumfries House

The hotel has been at the heart of Moniaive’s local community for over 100 years. Tim and Claire Sullivan and family have created a relaxed informal hotel where you can sit back by the open fire and enjoy traditional real ale, or play pool, darts or other traditional pub games. The hotel has been awarded two stars by the Scottish tourist board, a testament to the superb amenities and comfort. 'Macaras' is a traditional Scottish bar with log burner, where musicians often turn up for a session or you can enjoy a“blether” with the locals. The lounge bar with its huge open fire is a lovely place to relax after a hard day in the hills, by the river bank or at the Boswell Book Festival!
