Kirkcudbright

Kirkcudbright – Artists` Town.  The light and colours of this historic harbour town make it a haven for artists and tourists alike. A vibrant summer programme of entertainment culminates in the Floodlit Tattoo, complete with massed pipe bands.

Established as a Royal Burgh in 1455, Kirkcudbright has always been supported by a busy fishing trade. Behind the harbour the streets have housed generations of creative artists, a tradition maintained today by a flourishing colony of painters and craftworkers.

This has led to it being called “The Artists’  Town” Other well known features of the town are the pastel coloured houses and wide streets. We have a wide selection of mainly family owned shops where almost everything can be got, and parking is free all over town.

Although Kirkudbright itself is on the estuary of the River Dee, there is an excellent beach – Dhoon Beach a mile or two along the coast. The beach is great for bathing and has views of the lighthouse on Ross Island.

Each year, a wide range of events are held including the Kirkcudbright Jazz Festival and The Kirkcudbright Art & Crafts Trail – please have a look at these pages for more information
