Sanquhar

 
Sanquhar Accommodation inc hotels, self catering holiday cottages and bed and breakfastsThe ancient Town of Sanquhar, though granted its Royal charter as late as 1598, has its origins rooted in the 8th century when Sanquhar was first called ' Sean Caer ' meaning in the Celtic tongue ' Old Fort ' or ' Old Castle '.

Sanquhar is the site of the World’s oldest Post Office and scene of 17th century Covenantors’ declaration renouncing alliegience first to Charles I, then to James VII.

Sanquhar's Tolbooth erected in 1735 at the instigation of Charles Duke of Queensberry and designed by William Adam stands intact to this day and its graceful Palladian facade enhances the town's High Street.

The Southern Upland Way runs through Sanquhar which is an accommodation location for the route.
