The Hightae Inn is situated in the charming village of Hightae close to the River Annan. Our cosy Restaurant With Rooms offers stylish accommodation as well as good beer, fine wines and great home cooked evening meals.


Hello and welcome to The Hightae Inn.
We have just been awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for the 5th year running. The hotel is proving a great hit for overnight stop-overs if you are either heading North or South on holiday, to break up your journey.

Not overly keen on a 300 mile drive north of the border to see Scotland? Buck the trend and plan a short break with us here in Dumfriesshire. It’s a wonderful tranquil slice of South West Scotland.

Best rates guaranteed when you book direct.

Hightae is only 10 minutes from the A74(M) at Lockerbie and a bit of a hidden gem. The surrounding countryside offers an abundance of footpaths including the newly opened Annandale Way, river walks and quiet country lanes and is great for cycling.

Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel if you need to catch up on e-mails or have any googling requirements. Rumours abound that the village of Hightae will be blessed with fibre-optic broadband by the end of 2015. We currently receive download speeds of around 1.2Mb so huge excitement.

All our food is home-cooked using local produce where possible and our evening supper menu board is regularly updated to ensure a great variety of fresh tasty dishes.

Sit down in front of the wood burning stove after a days travel and enjoy a well earned refreshment.

Evening Suppers are served in the restaurant 5 nights a week (we’re closed on Mondays & Tuesdays from October-Febuary) and we’ve built up a pretty decent selection of single malt, luxury blended Whiskies and some great Gins to suit most tastes and also offer real ground espresso-style coffee – a perfect end to an evening.
