Getting Here


For people unable to drive, there is the Stagecoach No 5 bus from Great King street, Dumfries town centre to the Crichton/merrick house. The bus goes right past the premises and there is a sheltered bus stop right outside the building.

Since we are on the University bus route, the No 5 is about every 15 to 20 minutes and the price for a return ticket to the town centre is about £2. You can view the No 5 timetable here.
