A popular stopover along the A74(M), Lockerbie offers an exceptional choice of B&Bs, small hotels, welcoming inns with rooms and cosy cottages.

The Lockerbie area’s famous son, the writer and historian Thomas Carlyle, was born in Ecclefechan in 1795, just south of Lockerbie in a relatively humble house. The great thinker left Ecclefechan at 13, walking all the way to Edinburgh and the university! See a variety of Carlyle’s personal possessions, inside. The house is open for tours across the Easter and Summer seasons. Browse and book places to stay in Lockerbie.
