|The river Nith is never far away and salmon and Loch fishing are both available locally. A hotel gift voucher is also available for all these activities.
Classic car hire is a great way to explore the quiet roads, but so is just taking a gentle stroll from the hotel gardens into the surrounding countryside or doing a spot of shopping in the friendly boutiques of our local estate village of Thornhill.
Whichever you choose Trigony is dog friendly hotel which is all about having a special and relaxing country house holiday in this hidden corner of Scotland. We also sell a Hotel gift voucher making an ideal present.
We now also have wire-less internet access in most of our rooms including the Bar.

From the outside, Trigony Country House Hotel has much in its favour. The walls around the front door of this small Edwardian country house hotel Scotland are covered in a thick coat of ivy.
Above, an inscription is carved in the red sandstone, it is in large capital letters and offers some optimism: "The Lord bless thy going out and coming in", it announces. Underfoot, there is just the right depth of crunchy gravel to give the correct impression at this luxury hotel scotland.
Trigony is what picture postcards are made. One of its previous occupants was so impressed with the house that she stayed there for more than 100 years. She was Frances Shakerley, Scotland's oldest lady, who lived to be 107.
But that was a long time ago. Today the house is a country house hotel Scotland in the care of Jan and Adam Moore, a husband and wife team, who took over this pet friendly hotel 8 years ago.
Inside, there is no shortage of ornate features, just what you might expect to find in a fine country hotel Scotland. The entrance hall is dressed from head to foot in Japanese oak panelling which follows on up the staircase where a large art deco window lights up the whole area.
Our aim is to make Trigony the best Scottish Hotel, it was totally refurbished just before the war when there was still a fair number of craftsmen about and simple, stylish and tasteful touches enhance the dining room and public rooms of this hotel scotland, but best of all is their outlook, which through an extensive pattern of windows, peer on to the garden & grounds.
Directly above, the bedrooms of this country house hotel Scotland look further out on to the fine countryside of this often neglected part of Dumfries and Galloway in South-west Scotland. For the visitor, there are enough brochures and catalogues about the area's attractions to fill an old seadog's chest. Trigony is clearly not a country hotel Scotland that is in the mould of the corporate treadmill, but one that rests easily with peace, quiet and interestingly good food. It is also a dog friendly hotel & a pet friendly hotel.
While abroad, perhaps marinating in the South of France, the Moores have not escaped without acquiring some recipes. Consequently the menu often reflects footprints of their journeys.
There is a strong influence towards natural food of the Elizabeth David school. Simple European peasant dishes, and authentic Spanish and French dishes take their place beside steak and kidney pudding or roast rack of Dunscore lamb.
There is a leaning towards the organic grower. But more important, the grower that is not an intensive producer. Adam Moore is quite earnest about acquiring quality produce that is full of taste and he only deals with the small-scale organic farmer.
But like the custodians of all country hotels Scotland, he can hardly go wrong with traditional dishes, having the best Galloway beef, venison and game right on his doorstep. And of course fish from the Solway which is but a 40-minute drive.
This is an Ideal dog friendly Hotel from which to get an Activity gift voucher or a hotel gift voucher.
Note: Unlike many Country House Hotels, this country house hotel in scotland is a pet friendly hotel.
Now owned and run by Jan and Adam Moore and their local staff this Scottish Hotel is treated as much as a well loved family home as a relaxed country house hotel with all the facilities to make an enjoyable country holiday.
One of the great pleasures at Trigony is watching our Red squirrels in the garden, while having breakfast.
We are a Dog Friendly Hotel & Pet Friendly Hotel.
