The Friars Carse Country House Hotel is an extensive property which includes the main mansion house hotel, 2 cottages, stable courtyard with cottage, salmon fishing, development opportunities and all in private grounds.

The present mansion house is of a Scots-Baronial-style in dressed red sandstone constructed around an earlier house, built in 1873, and extended in the 1900s. The hotel has its accommodation arranged over four main levels, with fully serviced modern lift.

A truly rural location where outdoor life and sporting pursuits are to the fore and indeed complemented at Friars Carse which has its own salmon fishing on the River Nith. Apart from the scenic aesthetic beauty of the countryside, and the outdoor and sporting activities available, it is the locality’s, and specifically Friars Carse’s, links with Robert Burns that are of significant appeal. Friars Carse is part of the “Burns Heritage Trail”, with The Hermitage part of Friars Carse and neighbouring the property is the Robert Burns Ellisland Farm Visitors Centre.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a delightful country house hotel property in an easily accessible location, and the first time it has been on the market for 80 years. Operated entirely under management, Friars Carse is offered for sale in order that the owning company can rationalise its operations.
