Thank you for visiting our website and we - Andrew & Deborah look forward to welcoming you to Hillcrest, Wigtown- Scotlands Booktown in Glorious Galloway.

Set on the southern edge of town overlooking the Wigtown Bay & the Solway Firth, Hillcrest was built in 1875 as a private house.  It is an imposing Victorian villa that retains many original features, which we have sympathetically brought up to date to provide all the modern facilities expected by our guests, whilst retaining the charm and character of the house. All six of our rooms have ensuite facilities, hospitality tray featuring a great range of Fairtrade products, LCD TV, digital radio alarm clock, hairdryer & lovely bathroom essentials from Pure Lakes. We offer free wi-fi throughout the house, secure bike storage, & plenty of onsite parking. All rooms bar Moray are pet friendly (please see our Pets page for more details on our policy)

We offer comfortable bed and breakfast accommodation, together with evening meals (5 nights a week).  Our passion for food is what drives us to focus on the fantastic range of local produce we have hereabouts and full details about eating with us are on our "Eating " page.  Please note that if you would like dinner - this must be booked in advance as we only cooked for those pre-booked.   

Whether you are taking a break along the South West Coastal 300 drive, or your perfect break includes Dark Sky star-gazing , tea-tasting, birdwatching (several of our rooms look directly to the RSPB Baldoon), walking, cycling, chocolate making, beaches, gardens like Threave, Castle Kennedy or Logan, rolling down a hill in a giant ball or flying down a 820m zip wire at Laggan, golf at one of the 20 odd courses within a one hour drive, fishing, or just relaxing and browsing the Wigtowns's many bookshops, stay with us, eat with us, and share with us the beauty of Dumfries and Galloway.
