Local Information

The Visit Kirkcudbright website is an excellent source of information on the town and surrounding area.


Set amidst beautiful coastal countryside there is a comprehensive selection of holiday accommodation both in the town and in farms and villages nearby, including self catering cottages, bed & breakfast and hotels.  Kirkcudbright is especially well served by a number of high quality caravan and camping sites. Special interest groups such as cyclists, walkers and motor cyclists are catered for in many establishments.

For information on accommodation across the South of Scotland more generally, albeit with the interests of visiting golfers in mind, then please try the South of Scotland Golf website.


The area offers a wide range of activities for visitors and locals alike. These range from facilities to help you research your family tree to quiet country roads for walking or cycling, and golf and fishing are both on our doorstep.  For the more energetic there is mountain biking, horse riding and hill walking.  The marina is very popular with visiting sailors offering one of the safest anchorages on the north Solway coast.


There is a wealth of information on Kirkcudbright’s own information website and available from the Kirkcudbright Information Centre in the Harbour Square.


Throughout the year a variety of entertainment is provided by Kirkcudbright Summer Festivities.  This ranges from Scottish nights to classic car rallies, from historic walks to a medieval fayre.  The Annual Jazz Festival is held in June and a spectacular Tattoo is held every August with a Summer Art Exhibition in the Town Hall every July and August, often featuring artists who have lived or worked in the “Artists’ Town” of Kirkcudbright.

You can find more information on the Summer Festivities programme on their Facebook Page.
