Annan is a historic royal burgh that comes alive in the summer, with the historic Riding of the Marches and the skirl of pipes which can be enjoyed at the annual bagpipe festival. There is also award-winning food all year round. The western approach to Annan will afford you with a spectacular view of the town during your vacation stay. The plans for the 176-year-old road bridge in the area with its graceful arches were by the great engineer Rennie. You'll also find the important sandstone buildings at this end of the High Street which is Bridge House, built-in 1780 and is considered to be one of the finest Georgian townhouses to be found in Scotland. From 1802 to 1820 the Bridge House served as the town Academy, where Thomas Carlyle was both a pupil and teacher. Plans are underway to restore this Grade A listed building for public use and to also build a museum for East Dumfriesshire which will house the present collections of the Historic Research Centre and to provide permanent and temporary exhibition galleries and a cafe.
The Annandale Distillery was reopened in 2014 after 95 years and in 2018, the first single malts became available for Annandale for over 100 years. This is the first and last distillery in Scotland and is the ambitious project of a local entrepreneur and offers a full visitor experience at the start of a whiskey trail. There is a coffee shop that is also worth a visit. Recently relocated is the Devil’s Porridge Museum at Eastriggs where that is an exhibition of the WW1 munitions factory which combines history and humor.
