More Information

Less than a mile from junction 13 of the M74, this hotel is easy to find and features free Wi-Fi internet access throughout, and ample free parking. This friendly, family-run hotel is situated in the heart of a picturesque village in central Scotland and offers a comfortable, reasonably priced touring base. The centres of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling and the Trossachs, Burns country and Walter Scott country are all about an hourís drive away.

Had you travelled by stagecoach on the hazardous Carlisle-Glasgow route in the 1800s you would certainly have appreciated the hospitality and warmth of the Abington Coaching Inn, just as Napoleon III did in 1839 when he rested there after a tiring dayís grouse shooting. You can still find his chair in the hotel.
