Step inside and perhaps it's hard at first to reconcile age with the comfortably plush 21st century home to the finest cuisine and wines.
It is soon obvious though that the Inn has undergone a complete modernisation makeover tastefully achieved without compromising the many original features that are key to the building that last underwent major change as far back as 1804.
And that's down to new owner, award winning restaurateur and chef Robert Macaleese.
ABOUT THE INN
Rab, as he is known, has built up a considerable reputation for running restaurants where quality, taste, originality, variety and value for money are a trademark. Just ask the regular customers at Little Italy in nearby Dumfries.
Now Rab has widened his sights and bought the Auldgirth Inn, a B listed building of great character and antiquity, that stands off the A76 trunk road a ten minute drive north from Dumfries.
Six luxury rooms, whose tasteful decor reflects the overall ambience of the Inn, are designed to the highest of modern country character standards offering comfort and relaxation.
