Blackaddie Country House Hotel


A superb small hotel set in its own gardens on the banks of the river Nith, one of Scotland’s great yet little known salmon rivers and with extensive views across Scotland’s Southern Upland Way. Blackaddie has recently been awarded 3 GOLD Stars from VisitScotland. Seven beautiful bedrooms and suites, many of which overlook the gardens or the river some with stunning bathrooms.

There are also two self-contained cottages in the grounds, each with fully fitted kitchen, for those who wish to be independent. But who would when the hotel boasts food to rival the best anywhere? It is far and away above what one would expect in a small tucked away country house hotel.

Chef/Proprietor Ian McAndrew has held a Michelin star for many years in previous restaurants and his menus use fresh local produce with all dishes prepared on the premises. There’s a lot to see and do in this unspoiled corner of South-West Scotland with extensive biking, walking, fishing and riding in the area. There are also historic houses such as Dumfries House and Drumlanrig Castle within a short drive with Caerlaverock and Threave castles nearby. Glasgow 45 miles and Edinburgh 70 miles.

Blackaddie House is open all year.
