Kirkcudbright | Dumfries and Galloway

Established as a Royal Burgh in 1455, Kirkcudbright is known as the Artists’ Town. It is a pretty harbour town in Dumfries and Galloway. It sits at the mouth of the River Dee on the Solway Coast. The town is bustling and vibrant and offers visitors much to see and do. It hosts many events including the Floodlit Tattoo, the Jazz Festival and of course, the magical Kirkcudbright Festival of Light.

Kirkcudbright is famed as destination for art lovers due to the quality of the light. It was home for many years to one of the Glasgow Girls, illustrator Jessie M. King. Also a favourite location of the Glasgow Boys including James Guthrie and George Henry. Another Glasgow Boy, E. A. Hornel, lived at Broughton House on the high street, now owned by the National Trust, you can visit the house and beautiful Japanese garden.

A visit to the outstanding Kirkcudbright Galleries is an absolute must. This recently opened regional gallery in the town centre is home to an extensive artists collection. It also offers excellent temporary exhibitions throughout the year. Kirkcudbright Galleries is currently showcasing The Galloway Hoard, the richest collection of rare and unique Viking-age objects ever found in Britain or Ireland.

Explore Kirkcudbright’s dark side at the newly opened Johnston Centre which is home to the Dark Space Planetarium and to the Dark Art Distillery. Discover what it’s like to be in outer space through interactive exhibits and experience trips to the stars, all at the Dark Space Planetarium. Or take a tour of the Dark Art Distillery, learn about the history and the process of gin making and taste their delightful Sky Garden Gin, produced in the heart of Kirkcudbright.
