The Lady Maxwell Room is integrated into the rich history of Buittle Castle. Named after Lady Maxwell, the room is appointed in the Gothic Revival and Arts and Crafts styles. Lady Maxwell (pictured below in William-Adolphe Bouguereau's 1890 portrait) was a descendant of the medieval resident of Buittle Castle, Lady Devorguilla of Galloway, and was a great supporter of the Arts and Crafts movement and aided in the founding of the National Trust for Scotland.

Perfect in every way!

Buittle Castle is an amazing place to stay! The castle and grounds are stunning and the location is very convenient for all that Dumfries and Galloway has to offer. The rooms are cosy, comfortable and well appointed and the substantial breakfast is delicious. What makes this place truly special though are the people. Tim and Tobias are both wonderful hosts. They offer friendly, professional service where nothing is too much trouble and you are instantly made to feel at home. Having stayed at Buittle Castle a number of times now, there is nowhere else in Dumfries and Galloway that we would even consider staying. For us, this is as perfect as it gets!

We loved this place. If you like historic, characterful buildings you will too. The setting by the river is lovely. The castle buildings and gardens are attractive and being lovingly restored. Our room was as advertised; tons of character and really beautifully presented. It was also clean, warm and comfortable. We would have preferred tea and coffee making facilities in the room - but it is served in style upon request. The service is friendly but unobtrusive. The guys have real style. The breakfast was cooked to order and was delicious. We really liked that the guys clearly love their family home and are putting a lot of thought into bringing back to its former glory, and making it a great place to stay. Would recommend.



We stayed here one night on way home from visiting relatives

We loved the atmosphere of the place and the beautiful garden
The breakfast in the morning was really lovely also - might be worth mentioning when booking that no kettle/ drinks provided as would have gone with flask for early morning cuppa !

This was certainly different from the average b&b and we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights. Tim was our receptionist, butler, cook and the perfect host. The history of Buittle Castle was intriguing and the situation was perfect. The room was in need of improvement but not to the extent of spoiling the traditional ambiance. I would like to return in a couple of years to witness the renovations. My reason for not recommending Buittle Castle to others is that so many potential visitors have different expectations. Perfect for me but not for everybody. Thank you!
