If you are an avid reader you may be interested to know that J.M. Barrie the author of “Peter Pan” lived in the house next to us during his school years when he attended Dumfries Academy. There is a stone engraving on the building to commemorate his time there.
We have also recently added our “a day in the life of Rabbie Burns” guide to our blog. The guide allows you to follow in the footsteps of our national poet during his time in Dumfries. Starting at his now famous statue then down the vennel and across the 13th century sandstone Devorgilla Bridge, along the banks of the river nith (where Burns was an excise man). Stop off at his favourite “howff” and finish at his final resting place.
