Old Bridge House, Dumfries

Cross the fifteenth century Devorgilla Bridge to the Old Bridge House. Built in 1660 into the sandstone of the bridge itself, Dumfries’ oldest house is now a museum of everyday life in the town. You can see the family kitchen, nursery and bedroom of a Victorian home, and pay a visit to an early dentist’s surgery! Interpretive panels and museum trails tell the story of a house overlooking the river Nith.
