About the location
Dumfries 25 miles.
The historic and picturesque town of Kirkcudbright sits on the banks of the tidal waters of the River Dee, on the north Solway shore. Established as a Royal burgh in 1455, giving it status to trade with ports outside Scotland, Kirkcudbright has always been supported by a busy fishing trade and is home to a blue flag marina. Behind this working harbour, its wide streets and pastel coloured houses, a mix of Georgian villas and Victorian town houses, make for a very attractive town centre, complete with ruined McLellan's Castle. Also worth a visit is the very interesting Stewartry Museum, housing a collection of assorted items representing the life and times on the Solway coast. Kirkcudbright is also known as the artists' town, established by Edward Hornel in the late nineteenth century and still the case today, with a fine collection of art galleries, crafts, cafés and restaurants serving local produce and antique shops. There is also a helpful local Tourist Information Centre, a swimming pool and a small gym. The area offers a quiet and relaxing atmosphere with attractive coastal landscapes and plenty to offer the whole family.
