Built largely from red sandstone and with a number of historic buildings, including the town hall and clock tower, Lockerbie is a striking town. Although small, it's one of the first sizeable towns north of the border.
Book one of our Lockerbie hotels and explore the wide variety of attractions the town has to offer.
Annandale Distillery reopened in 2014 after closing almost 100 years before – it's thought that no other distillery has reopened after such a long closure. You can take a tour of the distillery, learn about the brands and enjoy a taste of its new spirit, Rascally Liquor. There are several tours available, including a restoration tour, where you'll learn about the restoration, and a tour with the distillery manager.
The centrepiece of the Dumfries and Galloway Aviation Museum is the restored control tower of the Second World War airfield at Dumfries, now a listed building. The museum houses a collection of more than a dozen planes, as well as engines and artefacts and personal histories relating to aviation. The planes include a Hawker Siddeley Buccaneer, a Spitfire Mark IIa and a Dassault Mystere, and you can even sit in the cockpit of some of them. There is also a display dedicated to the Parachute Regiment and Airborne Forces.
Built by Edward I in the 13th and 14th centuries, Lochmaben Castle had a dramatic life before being abandoned in the 17th century, and is now a ruin.
Arts and crafts
At Dalton Pottery, artists Geoff and Jenny Finch make items ranging from clocks and vases to candleholders and delightfully pretty painted chairs. You can watch the ceramics being hand-decorated and paint your own pot to take home in the art café, where you can enjoy a piece of homemade cake.
In The Art Hut, a gallery housed in a former shed at Hartwood Farm, on the estate of the Rammerscales mansion, artist Minette Bell Macdonald exhibits her watercolours of wildlife and plants.
Lockerbie came to international attention in 1988 when Pan Am flight 103 crashed in the town following a terrorist attack. In Dryfesdale Cemetery, on the outskirts of the town, there is a memorial garden in tribute not only to those who died but to the town's tight-knit community. There is also an exhibition on the town's history, from prehistoric times onward, and a quiet room.
Eating and drinking
The Hightae Inn, a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, serves home-cooked Scottish pub classics and a selection of whiskies from all six Scottish malt whisky regions. There's a wood-burning stove on cold days, and children's portions are available. For pub grub in historic surroundings, head to the family run 17th-century King's Arms Hotel, whose former patrons have included Bonnie Prince Charlie and Sir Walter Scott. For something different, try the North American- influenced menu at the Drovers Inn Hotel, which has a pool SEOSITE_LEVEL_DESCRIPTION and three TVs showing sporting events.
