Broughton House and Garden

 

 

Broughton House and Garden home of painter E.A. Hornel (a ‘Glasgow Boy’) from 1901 until 1933, and his sister Tizzy until her death in 1950. The house holds Hornel’s pictures, vast collection of artefacts and furniture. An extensive garden with all year interest. Research facility.

 

Right in the heart of Kirkcudbright, a pretty artists’ colony on the Solway Firth, this 18th-century Georgian house is the former home of Scottish painter E A Hornel, one of the Glasgow Boys.
Painstakingly preserved and recreated, Broughton House is  a living museum of Hornel’s life and work, packed to the rafters with his paintings and those of his contemporaries, as well as his vast library, which includes one of the world’s biggest collections of works by Robert Burns.
Nestled behind the house, backing on to the River Dee, is Hornel’s beautiful garden. Greatly influenced by his love of Japan, it’s a curious and colourful mixture of Eastern and Western horticulture and sculpture that is a delight to explore.

2019 OPENING: 29 March to 31st October, House & Garden 10am-5pm daily. See NTS web site for updates.
