Site of The King's Arms Hotel
The King's Arms Hotel, which was demolished in 1973, was reputed to be haunted by a woman in her early twenties. Traditionally she was the widow of Captain Robert Stewart, who died during the French revolution. She pined away after his death and died of heartbreak at the age of 24.
On the 28th of June 1996 the Dumfries Courier reported that her presence has been felt in Boots the chemists, which is now on the site. The original frontage of the building was preserved.
