The property

Located in the historic town of Kirkcudbright, this lovely cottage welcomes you into its homely interior, based on a quiet street lined with charming pastel-coloured houses.

Best suited to a family of four, 14 Union Street lies in a relaxing area of Kirkcudbright whilst still being close to all amenities.

A small step invites you inside to the hallway where you can hang up your coats and take off your shoes after your journey to the cottage.

Unwind with a glass of wine on the comfy sofa in the cosy sitting room as you watch a film on the TV, or pick out a book from the shelf, enjoying some peaceful reading time.

Cook up a traditional Scottish breakfast in the kitchen/diner area, filled with all the essentials you need to enjoy a delightful meal with your family before embarking on a busy day in the town.

Upstairs are two stunning coastal-themed bedrooms, a king-size and a twin, both with ample storage and a homely vibe where you can settle in before you fall asleep.

Complete your trip with a soothing bath or a shower, indulging in all the cottage has to offer.

When leaving the property, you're spoilt for choice by a selection of shops, pubs, galleries and museums, right in the centre of the town, making this the ideal location to explore Kirkcudbright.

A quick walk will lead you to the Artists' Town, a part of the area which has a thriving artist community and well-established galleries for you to enjoy.

Take a trip down to the beach at Dhoon Bay (a mere 2 miles away), and there are plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling and fishing nearby as well.

Attractions worth visiting include Broughton House, MacLellan's Castle and Galloway Forest Park.

Drive over to Castle Douglas, or to Sandgreen near Gatehouse of Fleet to take the little ones over to Cream o' Galloway amusement park, home of tasty dairy Cream o' Galloway Ice Cream, or Cocoa Bean Chocolate Factory & Amusement Park at Twynholm, an equally fun day out.

14 Union Street is the perfect destination to escape to the Scottish coast, and enjoy the thriving town of Kirkcudbright.

About the location

KIRKCUDBRIGHT

Dumfries 25 miles.

The historic and picturesque town of Kirkcudbright sits on the banks of the River Dee on the north Solway coast. Established as a Royal Burgh in 1455 this small port town 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 and Victorian town houses make for a very attractive town centre. Particular places of interest are the Tolbooth Museum, Broughton House and Gardens (National Trust), the Stewartry Museum, MacLellan's Castle, and the newly reburbished town Art Gallery. Kirkcudbright is also known as the 'Artists' Town'. From the 1870s onwards the town has both produced and attracted a wide range of talented artists and crafts people, and there is a fine collection of art galleries and arts and crafts shops. If you want your holiday to include some breaks from cooking you will find plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from, including the historic Selkirk Arms Hotel, and, near the harbour, Polar Bites, a very good fish restaurant as well as being a takeaway. Throughout the summer the town organises a wide range of activities including the four day Arts and Crafts Trail, four day Jazz Festival, a weekly Scottish night with pipe band and dancing (especially for children), weekly town tours, farmers markets, a vintage car rally... the list is endless. Visitors can also use the town's swimming pool, bowling club, golf club and tennis courts. Further afield there is the Galloway Activity Centre on beautiful Loch Ken, which offers a range of water sports, and the Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre which includes a zipwire - suitable for all ages! Perhaps best of all are the opportunities for walking, cycling, fishing, or just driving along the coasts and in the hills and valleys in some of Scotland's loveliest unspoilt scenery.
