About the local area

Kirkcudbright (pronounced kir-coo-bree) is one of the treasures of this relatively undiscovered corner of Scotland. The charms of the town and its surroundings have attracted artists for well over a century with links to the ‘Glasgow Boys' and other areas renowned for their artistic heritage, for example, St Ives, Newlyn and Pont-Aven in Brittany. Kirkcudbright is situated on the Dee estuary where it meets Kirkcudbright Bay in the beautiful Dumfries & Galloway region of south west Scotland. This picturesque working harbour town has what the ‘Rough Guide to Scotland' calls the “most beguiling of town centres, a charming medley of simple brick cottages with medieval pends, Georgian villas and Victorian town houses, many attractively painted”. Kirkcudbright is an ancient port and county town set on the warm south west coast of Scotland amongst the rolling hills and farmland of Galloway. Nowadays its industry is mostly centred around scallop fishing, farming and tourism. Kirkcudbright has its own Wildlife Conservation Park set in 27 acres of mixed woodland which looks after and preserves some of the rarest and most endangered animals in the world. The town still retains a tranquil and unspoilt beauty whilst at the same time being a popular destination for almost everyone enticed by the diverse programme of events held throughout the year. From the colourful Jazz Festival and the thrilling Riding of the Marches to the ever popular Maggie's Tour. The pinnacle of the Summer festivities is the annual Tattoo, which has Highland dancing, pipe bands and a spectacular fireworks display illuminating the stunning backdrop of MacLellan's Castle. The Galloway Forest Park is the largest in the UK and offers three hundred square miles of wild beauty amongst tranquil valleys encompassed by heather-clad hills, rugged rock faces, burns cascading down majestic slopes and the forest, moorland and lochs rising up to the grandeur of the mountains. The Merrick, the Rhinns of Kells and Mulwharcher stand proudly above the unspoilt, ancient woodland. The three visitor centres at Glentrool, Kirroughtree and Clatteringshaws offer a fascinating insight into the forest together with some shortbread and coffee. The Galloway Forest Park is the UK's first Dark Sky Park and as there is no obvious light pollution here, the stars are really a beauty to behold. Stretching from seashore to mountaintops, The Galloway Forest Park has an outstanding variety of wildlife. Red and Roe Deer thrive in this woodland park whilst mighty birds of prey patrol the skies. For adrenalin seekers we are hosts to five of the world renowned 7Stanes mountain biking venues offering superb single track together with easier forest tracks. One of the UK's longest zip wires offers a bird's eye view of the Islands of Fleet. The Roof Garden Apartment is the perfect base from which to explore this fascinating part of Scotland.
