By Car

Hightae is just 10 minutes off the A74(M) and approximately 2½ miles from Lochmaben and Lockerbie.

From Motorway:

Heading North – Leave A74(M) at junction 18, heading for Lockerbie and then onto the A709 signposted for Lochmaben and Dumfries.

Heading South – Leave A74(M) at junction 17, heading for Lockerbie and then onto the A709 signposted for Lochmaben and Dumfries.

From Lockerbie:

Head out of town on the A709 signposted for Lochmaben. Past the cemetery on the RHS and down the hill.

Head over the bridge at the traffic lights – please ignore immediate signpost for Hightae (this is a very narrow road and can lead to the occasional Mexican stand-off with a tractor). Instead keep on the A709 for Lochmaben and 200 yards or so after the 30mph sign, turn left at the church onto the B7020 signposted for Hightae.

Travel approx 2¼ miles along the B7020 and turn left at the sign for Hightae. (if you miss it – relax – there’s another turn off, ½ a mile along).

Down into Hightae and our hotel is on the left-hand side.

From Dumfries:

Head out of town on the A709 signposted for Lockerbie. Drive through Torthorwald and once in the centre of Lochmaben, turn right at the church (signposted for Hightae).

Travel approx 2¼ miles along the B7020 and turn left at the sign for Hightae. (if you miss it – relax – there’s another turn off, ½ a mile along).

Down into Hightae and our hotel is on the LHS.

Please take care if using a satnav from Dumfries as this has a tendency to take you over an extremely rough, non-tarmac hill road unsuitable for road going vehicles.
