At Trigony we are passionate about relaxation and exploring our hidden corner of south west Scotland with your four-legged friend and we are lucky enough to live in a place where those two things go hand in hand.
We live in a very beautiful place and sharing it with our 2 and 4 legged guests over the past two decades has been great fun.
The seasonal country larder on our doorstep is amazing and we love taking full advantage of it in our Restaurant from the wild garlic growing in the Garden in early spring to the Wild Girolles in the woodland at the bottom of the drive in summer & the Blackberrys & wild Raspberrys growing along the single track road at the back of the Hotel in the Autumn. One of our best loved specialties ( I don't think it has been off the menu more than a handful of times) is wonderful local Roe Venison.
Add to this fresh fish from the lovely little fishing port of Kirkcudbright, black face mutton from the southern uplands & high welfare Rose Veal from our local farm at Holywood and we really do have an incredible local larder.
We are just outside the charming 18th Century Estate village of Thornhill with its interesting individual boutiques, craft & Antique shops, a hand made chocolate shop, and a very good INN.
At Trigony we specialise in organising interesting ways to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside; by organising falconry lessons inthe hotel grounds and surrounding countryside or horse riding just a couple of hundred meters from trigony trekking through the nith valley, Or simply relaxing in the wood fired hot tub overlooking the Nith Valley & Kir hills.
3 miles from Trigony The baronial pile of Drumlanrig castle and gardens is well worth a visit with a fine art collection including works by da Vinci, Canaletto, Reynolds & Gainsborough amongst others, The gardens are also well worth a visit on their own.
There is some truly beautiful countryside to explore in the southern uplands, fantastic for dog walking from the lovely river side walks along the Nith valley to parts of the southern upland way.
The uplands of Dumfriesshire are home to the works of two world famous landscape artists, The Giant Majestic sand stone Striding arches of Andy Goldsworthy and the amazing Crawick Multiverse, the Space inspired sculpted landscape of Charles Jencks.
A little further to the North is Prince Charles now completed restoration project of Dumfries House A palladian country House home to the largest collection of Chippendale furniture in the world, and open year-round.
South of Trigony The Solway coast is within easy reach, Cliff top paths and secluded sandy beaches await along the Colvend coast as well as the pretty national trust village of Rockcliffe & the Marina village of Kippford.
