Dumfries and Galloway Travel Guide: 370 reviews and 774 photos
We made our third visit to this wonderful town. I hope some of you will take time to explore this overlook corner of Scotland.
Kirkcudbright is a lovely harbor town on the river Dee. Scallop boats and flowers can be found at the harbor
When I looked at visiting the first time in 2000 I was won over by their community website. In it's People section it had a picture and description of Caesar the Town Cat. It described how he roamed the town eating at many establishments, sleeping in store windows and then moving on. When we hopped off the bus and entered the Tourist Information Center there was this ginger cat. THE Cat.
I new then and there we had arrived at a wonderful place. We have returned twice since then and continue to enjoy our visits.
We drove to Castle Douglas to pick up beer from the Sulwath Brewery. Be sure to stop in for a pint and a chat with the owners, they are really fine folks.
We got Scotch pies at the corner bakery and on to Sunrise Foods store for cheese and wine.
Castle Douglas calls itself the Food Town. They do have some good food!
We took the 41/2 mile Dee River walk. This was one of the area walks you outlined in a "Walking in and around Kirkcudbright and Auchencairn" pamphlet available at the Tourist Center.
This walk left town and headed north along a lovely path, some curious cows and we could see the Cumstoun House a large private home across the way.
It was a good day to eat a Scotch Pie and sip a Sulwath ale.
This gallery on the Harbor and just below the castle is the place to stop and shop for local art. There on ever changing... more travel advice
This is a small museum but filled to the brim with interesting things. From ancient times and items to the present. more travel advice
