Stayed in the wig wam whilst hiking the Southern Upland Way. Had our own sleeping bags and pillows (we were told we'd need them as there's only mattresses) and we were really comfortable. The heater is brilliant (it was snowing when we stayed there....... in late April!) and the kettle and tea making things were a nice touch. There's water... More

During a family day out in Wanlockhead decided to try the Wanlockhead Inn -the highest pub in Scotland - for a bite to eat. Place was really quiet and weren't sure if they were serving food. Got a friendly yes and invited to take our pick of seats after being given menus. The children and ourselves made our choices, began... More

We walked along to Wanlockhead when staying in Leadhills one Saturday at the end of September. We chose to visit the area as my granny grew up there and we used to visit when I was younger. The pub is in a lovely setting with the hills of Wanlockhead around it, and a nice big grassy garden with tables outside.... More

I stayed at the wigwam recently, after booking it by phone the previous night. As the Inn is closed on a Monday and Tuesday, the key was left in an agreed spot for me. So far, so good. However, despite the presence of a kettle and tea, coffee, etc., I couldn't find any source of water and had to make... More

We have visited the Wanlockhead Inn on many occasions in the past and have always been offered a very warm welcome. They now have a micro-brewery producing 'beer with altitude', given that it's the highest pub in Scotland. I have to say that it's very nice indeed - good luck with the venture Dean. The food here is always ample... More

First off this is not an attraction but a pub that serves food and should be listed under restaurants. We were a group of 4 that went along for a meal on a Tuesday Night. They had a nice fire to keep us warm as it was a bit chilly over the May Day weekend. The bar was well stocked... More

If visiting Dumfries and Galloway the Wanlockhead Inn is a must to pop in for a meal or a drink , situated high in the Lowther hills. It has a great atmosphere, Friendly staff, great food and a good selection of drinks, The locals are lovely people who make you feel welcome.
