About the location
Dumfries 25 miles
Pronounced ‘Ker-coo-bree’, and known as the ‘Artists’ Town’, and often as the ‘St.Ives of the North’, Kirkcudbright is a pretty harbour town nestled at the foot of the Galloway hills on the Dee Estuary. With its wide streets and pastel-coloured houses, little cobbled passageways with quaint cottages bedecked with flower pots, friendly locals who say hello and smile, the town is a veritable haven for visitors. The town has been an artist colony since the late 19th century attracted by the ‘special light’ and picturesque scenery within and surrounding the town. It has a castle, a museum, three churches, a working harbour, a marina, golf course, tennis courts, a bowling green and a swimming pool. As well as some top quality art galleries there are good supermarkets, independent shops, restaurants, cafes and takeaways including a fish & chip shop that is more of a seafood restaurant where you are welcome to BYI without being charged corkage! Throughout the summer, a range of festivities and events are organised by local volunteers, including a 4-day Art & Crafts Trail and a 4-day Jazz Festival, the ‘Riding of the Marches’ where horses and riders gallop through the streets to commemorate the town becoming a Royal Burgh in 15th Century, a weekly Scottish Night with pipe bands and country dancing, a Parade Day with beer tent and entertainment, a Vintage Car Rally, a Children’s Festival and weekly town tours. There is a monthly car boot sale and regular Vintage Fairs in the summer and throughout the year there are monthly Farmers & Producers markets. Walking, golf, horse riding, pony trekking, fishing and other ways to enjoy the landscape are on Kirkcudbright’s doorstep including activity centres such as the Galloway Activity Centre, where many watersports can be played such as kayaking and waterskiing and Langham Outdoor Activity Centre with its zip wire and human catapult as well as many other exciting activities are on offer for the adventurer.
