Business Details

The Selkirk Arms is a delightful townhouse hotel with two restaurants in a central location for exploring the artists town of Kirkcudbright and the surrounding area.

The Selkirk Arms Hotel dates back from 1777 and is known to have had Robert Burns as a lodger on several occasions around 1794, although there are conflicting stories as to the origin of The Selkirk Grace, many believe that it was at this very hotel that Burns penned the famous grace prior to attending at dinner hosted by the Earl of Selkirk at his home on St Mary's Isle.

Kirkcudbright is located right by the sea and the hills are a stone-throw away. Kirkcudbright was and still is a cultural hub; living up to its name "the artist's town" with its galleries, museums and artists studios. There are not many towns and cities that can boast its own castle right in the heart of it all. Stroll through the streets of the colourful houses and little fishing harbour and relax in an array of little cafes and bakeries. Local shops are here to cater for your needs. All for a pleasant, enjoyable stay and a perfect base to explore Dumfries and Galloway.

We are happy to rent out ebikes to our hotel guests. For those who want to bring their own bikes, we have excellent storage facilities.
