Lockerbie Hotels

Mini guide to Lockerbie

     

The small town of Lockerbie is located in southwestern Scotland in the region known as Dumfries and Galloway, roughly 20 miles from the border with England and infamously the place where a bombed PanAm flight came down in late 1988.

Known as the birthplace of the 19th century writer and historian Thomas Carlyle, one of the most influential figures of his era, the house in which he was born is now a museum which commemorates his life and work. The residence is furnished to emulate a typical 19th century home and includes many of his personal belongings and an impressive collection of artworks.

Other notable attractions in the town include the late 19th century Lockerbie Town Hall with its imposing clock tower constructed from rose-coloured sandstone and built in the Scottish baronial style, the bronze WWII memorial that is located below the hall and the Dryfsdale Parish Church, with its dazzling interior.

Leisure opportunities include hiking in the surrounding countryside, bird watching or enjoying a meal at one of the rustic eateries dotted about town. Keen golfers should head to the Lockerbie golf course, which was founded in 1890 and boasts an 18-hole course with spectacular views over the surrounding scenery.

The Caerlaverock National Nature Reserve is an ideal location for a day excursion from Lockerbie, located just south of the town of Dumfries and encompassing the ancient Caerlaverock Castle and the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, a 1,400-acre sanctuary for abundant species of birdlife.

Lockerbie is accessible by car or coach via the A74 and M74, and is served by trains travelling regularly to and from Lockerbie train station. The nearest airport is situated at Glasgow, 30 miles from Lockerbie.
