History of Mabie House

Definitely Mabie


Steeped in history

Mabie House was originally built in the 17th century and passed through several generations of local landed gentry, including the Keswick family.

In the 1960’s the Keswick family handed building over to the local Forestry Commission, who utilised it’s forest location to provide hostel accommodation for workers within the forest and nearby sawmill.

It was not until the 1970’s that it first became a large guesthouse, offering bed and breakfast accommodation to tourists and visitors to Dumfries and Galloway.

Over the years, it grew in popularity, with families looking to host weddings and christenings in the beautiful old building and surrounding grounds you can still find here today.


Another Happy Customer

We had a family get together here and boy we had a great time. The room was spacious, elegant and extremely comfortable. The staff were friendly, attentive and professional. The food was well cooked, well priced and hearty! Mabie House is great base for those wanting to explore the nearby lochs, Forrest or hills. We are certainly returning as I can’t wait to get comfortable in the snug with the log fire roaring!
