A former coaching Inn - now a modern day Boots

About Old Kings Arms Hotel

Where Boots now stands, this former coaching inn, was once home to a forlorn young woman named Jane Stewart who was left heartbroken by her husband’s untimely death. Cold presences, voices and moving objects are among the reports of haunting activity, and a tall figure in black has been witnessed by several staff members.

Following his arrest and subsequent trial for the infamous West Port Murders in Edinburgh, William Hare betrays his partner in crime to the authorities and flees to Portpatrick – what he doesn’t bargain on is the outpouring of rage from the people of Dumfries during his stay at the Old King's Arms Hotel.
