Trigony House Hotel
Dumfries and Galloway
A comfortable and welcoming country hotel with fine food.
Trigony House Hotel, a fine Edwardian Country House set in 4 acres of gardens and grounds a mile south of Thornhill in Southern Scotland, used to be the Shooting Lodge for Closeburn Castle. Chef proprietor Adam Moore and his wife Jan have established a reputation for cooking and serving with great care excellent home-made food using organicaly grown vegetables, herbs, organic meat and local game. Guests are drawn back time and time again above all to experience the cuisine at Trigony.
This area of Dumfries and Galloway around the village of Thornhill remains a relatively undiscovered part of Scotland. Trigony is under five miles from Drumlanrig Castle which is one of the world's most spectacular castles and which also has a fine collection of art and furniture. All around Trigony there are walks in unspoilt landcapes, gardens, quiet roads and remote hills with mountain hares and wild goats. The Moores are always ready to help and give detailed advice about touring in the area, as well as arranging shooting and fishing on nearby estates.
Guests at Trigony also enjoy golf, falconry, joining the rangers at Drumlanrig Castle Estate on wild-life safari, cycling (hire or bring your own) horse riding (a short walk from Trigony to the stables).
There are ten bedrooms (three shown below) all with views of the gardens and most with views to the Moffat Hills or the Nith Valley.
