About the location
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, McLellan'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 art 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 Britain's loveliest unspoilt scenery. The Tourist Information Office in the Harbour Square can provide information about all these activities and events. .
