A sleeping beauty, restored to life after a nearly hundred-year hiatus, Annandale Distillery flung open its doors and casks again in 2014. Handsome red sandstone buildings, set around a cobbled courtyard, are topped by an elegant chimney and spired roof, beneath which lie the magical rumblings of a working distillery, where you can pick up a take-away dram for later. The friendly team offer tours and will tell you about the history of the area: this is Robert the Bruce and Robert Burns land; you can try the whiskys named after them.

The dog-friendly Maltings café is open to all and serves finger-licking cheese scones fresh out of the oven alongside soup and huge filled sandwiches (try the cheese and haggis). The towering cakes are impressive: courgette and avocado, and cranberry and white chocolate tiffin. Waney-edged wood, exposed beams, rosy stone walls and iron pillars create a soothing spot. Cluster around a striking triangular table or relax on the deep, purple sofa and enjoy a rich, strong coffee or loose leaf tea. Once you're refreshed you can release your inner Celt and take a look at the actual costumes used in the Robert the Bruce film Outlaw King, and have your photo taken with some of the gory props.

There’s bags of parking a short walk away in the car park, with closer options for disabled visitors.
