Number 5 Burns Street offers close to town centre accommodation in what is arguably Dumfries' most famous street, named after Robert Burns, who lived, worked and died in the house diagonally opposite.

About the neighbourhood
Burns Street is a quiet street, tucked away in the centre if town. It's not a rat-run. It doesn't really go anywhere, except to the same place a road that runs parallel goes to, which is the main one-way system around town. Burns Street itself is partially one-way and Sat Nav beings you in the wrong way so please follow the directions on the map we always send.
Getting around
Dumfries is a route-centre so there are many local buses to the surrounding towns and villages. Trains go south as far as Carlisle (one or two trains a day go to Newcastle) and North through the Nith Valley line to Glasgow. Carlisle airport is opening routes to Belfast, Dublin and London Southend in June 2018, operated by Loganair.
