This 17th-century coaching inn sits in a stunning location at the top of Loch Ken on the edge of Galloway Forest Park, a superb area for walking, fishing, birdwatching, golf, watersports and photography. Part of the hotel was once the police station and in the beamed period bar the food is served in restored, stone-walled cells. The weekly-changing dinner specials feature the likes of deep-fried goats’ cheese with caramelised onion relish; minted shoulder of lamb, creamy mash and seasonal vegetables; and home-made Galloway steak pie and chips. If you’ve still room enjoy hot chocolate fudge cake or sticky toffee pudding.
