Holiday Cottages Kirkcudbright

Kirkcudbright, which sounds like “kir-coo-bree”, is easily one of the prettiest towns in Dumfries and Galloway. It’s nestled in South West Scotland, close enough to England that you can see the peaks of the Lake District on a clear day, yet there’s no doubting its Celtic roots! This is Scotland as you’ve always dreamed it, with clans, castles, and centuries of history to boot. Read more

Kirkcudbright Cottages

There is no shortage of cottages in Dumfries and Galloway, including plenty in Kirkcudbright. Some visit Kirkcudbright to trace their family roots (it’s the area of the Clan MacLellan). Others come for the spectacular natural scenery that lends itself perfectly to walking, cycling and scenic drives. The light and landscape have made Kirkcudbright an artists’ town too, with some of its medieval, Georgian and Victorian buildings now hosting independent shops and galleries.

Plan a self-catering holiday in one of our Kirkcudbright holiday cottages and get ready to tick everything off your bucket list! We’ve even got some that are dog-friendly. Scottish hospitality is legendary, too. Not only will you find locally distilled whisky widely available, but also a memorable choice of food and drinks in local restaurants and pubs. Kirkcudbright isn’t simply worth a visit — it should be at the top of your list of places to see in Scotland!

Best things to do in Kirkcudbright

Pack your days with adventure, history and excitement, and your nights with music and spectacular stargazing when you stay in Kirkcudbright.

  • Broughton House and Garden: The centre of a Scottish town is not where you’d expect to find beautifully landscaped Japanese gardens. That, coupled with an impressive art collection, is what makes Broughton so special.
  • Kirkcudbright Galleries: Kirkcudbright’s status as an artists’ town is reflected in the exhibitions and collections at Kirkcudbright Galleries on St Mary Street.
  • The Stewartry Museum: Created in the 19th Century, the Stewartry Museum is the place to learn about the geological and social history of East Galloway.
  • Dark Art Distillery: Tour the Dark Art Distillery to see the creation of their botanical Sky Garden Gin which was inspired by the beauty of the night skies.
  • Kirkcudbright Dark Space Planetarium: The Galloway Forest is an International Dark Sky Park. However, you don’t need the sun to set to learn about space when you visit The Planetarium at The Johnston.
