Ecclefechan is a picturesque village, which was visited by Robert Burns and is the birthplace to Thomas Carlyle. Local amenities include two general stores, a Post Office (operating restricted hours), hair and beauty salon and a village park. The village has bus stops that will take you North to Lockerbie and Dumfries. Take the bus south and you can easily reach Gretna Green and Carlisle.

Below are a few links to help you plan your visit or click here to be taken to the Visit Dumfries and Galloway website.



Thomas Carlyle's Birthplace - looking upon this humble house today, it is inspiring to reflect that this was the birthplace of one of Britain's most influential thinkers. Thomas Carlyle was born here in 1795, and went on to become a great writer and historian, as well as one of the leading voices on 19th-century morals and social equality.

The interior of the house is furnished to reflect domestic life at Carlyle's time and contains a fascinating collection of portraits and Carlyle's personal belongings.

Brownmoor Wood - while on your stay why not take a lovely peaceful walk around Brownmoor Wood and take in the fantastic views over Ecclefechan. On a clear day you can see down on to the Solway Coast and across to Cumbria.

The 7stanes - seven mountain biking centres spanning the south of Scotland, from the heart of the Scottish Borders to Dumfries and Galloway. 'Stane' is the Scots word for stone, and at each of the 7stanes locations, you'll find a stone sculpture reflecting a local myth or legend.
