The Hightae Inn is a delightful small restaurant with rooms just 10 minutes from the A74(M) at Lockerbie and is proving a great hit for overnight stop-overs if you are either heading North or South on holiday. We're also pretty popular in the area for evening suppers with our fresh home-cooked evening meals served from 6.30pm to 8.30pm using locally sourced produce where possible. B&B Accommodation of 5 en-suite bedrooms - all recently renovated.

Mark and Morag are really lovely people: friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was excellent: great coffee & perfect eggs. The room spacious with a comfortable bed. What else do you want? The Hightae is a gem of a place to stay.. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely evening, delicious food, excellent service and great 'ambience'. Not a massive menu but we felt it was perfectly balanced, with choices for vegetarians / pescatarians and the food was cooked to perfection. A real find and we shall definitely return, next...More

Thanks for your enquiry Gill - we're just a small eatery open in the evening and serving food between 6pm and 8.30pm, and unfortunately can't accommodate dogs in the restaurant. Kind regards, M&M at The Hightae Inn.
