Conveniently and peacefully situated between Dumfries (15 minutes) and Thornhill (20 minutes), McMurdoston House offers comfortable, warm and welcoming accommodation for visitors to this lovely, but largely undiscovered, area of Scotland.
Originally dating from 1540 our historic ex-farmhouse was extended in 1922 and provides a perfect get-away from the hustle and bustle of the 21st century.
Open all year round, McMurdoston is a paradise for wildlife and our main aim is to offer a haven for our human visitors too. We have two newly-converted self-catering cottages, each capable of sleeping four, and ideal as bases from which to explore the area. In the main house we also have two delightful guest rooms, one double and one twin, each with private facilities, wonderfully comfortable beds, plus many extras to make your stay that little bit more special.
Take a glance at our Things to Do page for some idea of the enormous scope Dumfries and Galloway offers to visitors, however long or short your stay.
Come and experience the peace, the views, the wonderful wildlife and the genuine welcome you’ll receive at McMurdoston.
If Wi-Fi is important to you, please note that ours is free but not 100% reliable, particularly in Swift Cottage – perhaps providing the ideal opportunity to escape from 21st century communication overload…? Let us know if this is a problem and we’ll do our best to connect you.
We have three cats at McMurdoston – Sheba, Tabs and Zeus – hence our decision not to accept dogs.
Smoking is strictly forbidden in any of our buildings.
