The Dumfries and Galloway region

Enjoy a relaxing break

Canonbie in Dumfries & Galloway is an ideal location to explore the beautiful and scenic area of southern Scotland, whether walking, touring or cycling throughout Dumfriesshire, the Esk Valley and into the Scottish Borders.

The Cabin at North Lodge is perfectly situated to give you the best Dumfries & Galloway has to offer.


Excellent Fishing

The Border Esk, one of Scotland's finest salmon and sea trout rivers is only a short walk from North Lodge B&B. Daily or weekly fishing permits are available and we'd be delighted to prepare packed lunches on request. Guests of North Lodge can benefit from a 20% discount on fishing permits.

Private and exclusive Course fishing

We can now offer exclusive course fishing on our half acre pond to our cabin guests. The pond is stocked with Common and Crucian Carp, Tench and Rudd with some Carp now over 5Ibs. The pond is overlooked by the Cabin and is only yards away so if you want to enjoy private, undisturbed fishing, this is for you! Please ask for details.

Cycling & Walking

There's fantastic opportunities for cyclists and walkers with short and long routes throughout the area, we can help prepare you for a day's activities by providing an excellent Scottish breakfast to set you up for the day.

What's on nearby?

Canonbie – The village of Canonbie is located just over 1 mile north of the Scottish border and has a population of over 400 people. Canonbie sits on the River Esk and many people come to fish for salmon or sea trout.

The history of the locality goes back many years to the time of the Reivers and the river and village were immortalised by Sir Walter Scott in his poem 'The Young Lochinvar'. It was during the reign of David 1st (1124 – 1153) that the priory was founded, and from this Canonbie got its name 'the town of Canons'. Being in the very heart of the debateable lands during turbulent times, it appears that Lord Wharton destroyed the Priory in his notorious raid after the battle of Solway Moss in 1542.
