Scaurbridge House B&B South West Scotland Family friendly Luxury Pet/Dog Friendly B&B in thornhill, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland


The perfect place to relax and unwind. Small private country house offering bed and breakfast all tailored to make your stay the very best at the most reasonable price. Welcoming, romantic, log fires, beautiful garden and scenery, great local food.

 

Conveniently positioned for Glasgow, Edinburgh, Ayr and Carlisle, Scaurbridge House is just 4 miles from Drumlanrig Castle and 30 from Dumfries House. Fishing, shooting, walking, birdwatching, country pursuits and lots of unspoilt nature are in abundance here or nearby. Let me organise an itinerary or wander at will if you prefer. Whatever you choose, you can be assured of my attention to detail and to your individual requirements. Penpont is the birthplace of Joseph Thomson, the African explorer and the home of world renowned artist Andy Goldsworthy. If art is your pleasure, there are sculptures by Henry Moore, Rodin and Epstein nearby and many interesting local artists offer visits to their studios showing a highly eclectic range of works.

Robert Burns farmed at Ellisland, just 10 miles away and Greyfriars Church was the scene of the killing of the Red Comyn by Robert the Bruce.


Penpont lies approximately two miles west of the River Nith surrounded by the gentle hills which afford superb views.

This historic area welcomes the fisherman, golfer, naturalist, rambler, cyclist or country lover. 


We specialise in delicious home cooking using top quality local produce in season. Galloway beef and lamb, local game, cheeses and honey. Fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs from our garden when available, are just some of the culinary delights on offer. I have included a summer and winter menu as examples from my table. However, individual menus are always agreed in advance of your visit.

~~~~~~~
Hot puff pastry cases filled with mushrooms 
sautéed in butter, Dijon and grainy mustard and served 
with freshly dressed salad leaves from the garden.
~~~~~~~
Barony smoked salmon steak 
baked with fresh garden herbs and butter and served 
with roasted Mediterranean vegetables and 
new potatoes from the garden.
~~~~~~~
Fresh summer fruits from the garden in elderflower champagne on home made meringue and whipped cream with a fresh home made blackcurrant ice cream. 
~~~~~~~
Terrine of wild rabbit with prunes 
soaked in Armagnac served with hand made oatcakes
