The house is large with huge rooms and is luxuriously furnished, having everything you could want, the kitchen dining area is amazing and every appliance you will need, even a built in NEFF coffee maker. The house was... More

Thank you to Tign Na Mara for a wonderful start to 2016. The beautiful meal, the presentation, the staff and the entertainment were all first class. I will be recommending the restaurant to everyone I know.

Ideal spot for a night on the Trail, at the centre of the village. Comfortable (real fire if it's cold), nice bar with pool table, good food, and very welcoming team of staff. Happily we didn't have to check out drying facilities.

My husband & I have stayed at Tigh Na Mara Hotel twice already & will be staying again in a few weeks for my birthday! It is one of the best hotels we have stayed at for value for money, facilities & proximity to the Dumfries & Galloway trail. It's dog friendly, which is very important to us as we... More

Trip advisor know nothing! These sites should be made to be accountable for their lack of research. Any little troll with a perceived grievance can write what they like and get away with it. Tigh na mara gave us a fantastic weekend, with our dog when no-one else had any space, they gave us a fantastic meal even though the... More

We were made very welcome on our arrival and the manager - Neil - came to our table and very discretely and with a huge amount of... More
