About The Murray Arms

Nestled in the quaint town of Gatehouse of Fleet, South West Scotland, our bed and breakfast style accommodation is in prime position for you to discover and experience culture and adventure. Originally built in 1760 as a coaching inn, The Murray Arms served as a resting place for weary travellers journeying through the beautiful Scottish countryside.

The Murray Arms is an iconic building in the bonnie town Gatehouse of Fleet. Rich in history, the building was originally built in 1760 and has famous Scottish historical persons stay. Robert Burns famously drafted his first draft of Scots Wha Hae in The Murray Arms, something the building will never forget.

The interior was designed entirely by Vicki. Similarly to GG’s Yard (the wedding venue at Laggan) The Murray Arm’s interiors portrays a feeling of modern Scottish undertones. With colour pallets that compliment each other, the rooms are assembled with rich textures and earthy hues. Soft yet atmospheric lighting carries through the building to create a warm and welcoming ambience.

The historic association with Robert Burns is remembered in elements of wall art positioned carefully within the building. Stone flags run throughout the bottom floor to create a more traditional look that’s beautiful yet robust. Mirrored areas fabricate an added feeling of space and light in areas which can feel darker.

In October 2023, The Murray Arms and Vicki McConchie were awarded Best Designed Hotel in Scotland by Hotels of the Year Scotland awards, a testament to Vicki’s creative flair and passion.
