Annan Dumfries and GallowayThe Annan hotels listed below are either in the town or we have given a rough guide as to how far they are from Annan. We hope you enjoy your stay and find your ideal accommodation from our list of Annan hotels and/or the surrounding area.

The historic Royal Burgh of Annan is a small border town set on the River Annan, 16 miles from Carlisle or Dumfries and only 8 miles from Gretna Green. Once an important trading port, the town is made up of many traditional red stone buildings and boasts a rich history of ship building and fishing. It lies at the start of the lovely Solway Coast Trail - a drive along quiet roads to a wealth of castles and abbeys. The Sustrans Cycleway passes through Annan over the specially built river bridge. There are plenty of local walks to take in the rich variety of wildlife - red squirrel, roe deer, otter, foxes, badgers, kingfishers, owls and sea birds. With a lovely sandy beach just 3 miles west at Powfoot, this is a superb place from which to explore an unspoilt area, either on foot or by car. If you are in the right town but cannot find the accommodation you want on this page, you might consider bed and breakfast in Annan or self catering accommodation in Annan.

It is the most important Anglo-Saxon cross in Scotland and a monument of international importance. The cross originally stood near the present church. In 1664 it was pulled down and smashed on the instructions of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. In 1802 it was re-erected in the manse garden and in 1887 was moved to a specially built apse in the church. About 6 miles west of Annan.
