See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
A pub with a world-class view overlooking the Nith Estuary and Solway Firth. On a clear day the mountains of the North Lakes are clearly visible on the English side of the Firth. The view up the Nith is just as good. Inland is Criffel, a majestic hill with dramatic views in all directions from the summit. Carsethorn is a former fishing village that was once a major point of emigration. Not too far away is the birthplace of John Paul Jones, founder of the US Navy.
There is a limited bus service to either Dumfries or Sandyhills, Kippford and Dalbeattie.
