The Ship Inn

Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty the Ship (est. 1794) is surrounded close to the coast and on the edge of the magnificent Galloway Forest Park with lochs, forest trails and unique wildlife.


Recharge your Batteries

After a day out exploring all that Galloway has to offer, the Ship Inn is the perfect place to relax and recharge ready for the next day.

Our aim is to offer our guests the ultimate getaway and we are always on hand should you need anything to make your stay more enjoyable.

The Ship Inn offers a cosy public bar with a large beer garden backing onto the river Fleet. We even have palm trees thanks to the Gulf Stream, which gives Galloway its wonderfully mild climate.

Our bedrooms which have been recently refurbished have Smart TVs with complimentary fibre WiFi available throughout.


Perfect for Families

Children are very welcome at The Ship Inn, with our superior family room providing plenty space for a family of four. We have a selection of toys, and a kiddies corner in the guest lounge, complete with television, toys and games.

“Lots of different teas and coffees in the room. And a coffee maker with pods. It was quiet even though it faced a road, perfect.”

“We had visited the Ship Inn several times in the past when it was comfortable pub selling delicious bar food. It has now been transformed into a chic, modern hotel, the former bar area now housing the wonderful No 1 Fleet Street restaurant.”

A warm welcome by Jonathan and Sarah was received on our third visit… I’m sure we will return next year.


Check in handled very well and showed up to room. Excellent room which was spotless and had all we could possibly need.
