Wigtown was a blind choice as a way point on our tour. Hillcrest was a pleasant surprise and well worthwhile. The hosts were a delightful couple who were proud of their beautiful house. Rooms were large with high ceilings and the lounge was well appointed.

Stayed in the Moray room with fantastic view over the Solway Firth. Short walk into town or down to the harbour. 3 course meal on first night was beautifully cooked and presented. Definitely recommend a stay here.

An elegant b and b with style and comfort. We had the four poster bedroom with a view over the solway firth, just beautiful. The room was quiet and peaceful, tastefully decorated and the breakfast was pretty decent too.More
