Our selection of Kirkcudbright Hotels in Dumfries & Galloway.
Lying on the SW Scotland, at the head of the Dee estuary, Kirkcudbright has granaries and creameries and is a market town and artists' colony. There are traces of an ancient wall and moat and of a McClellan clan castle (1582). The town lies south of Castle Douglas and Dalbeattie. It was the county town of the former county of Kirkcudbrightshire.
Kirkcudbright has had a long association with the Glasgow art movement, which started when a colony of artists, including the Glasgow Boys and the famed Scottish Colourists, such as Samuel Peploe and F. C. B. Cadell, based themselves in the area over a 30-year period from 1880 to 1910. Kirkcudbright has been home to some professional footballers, most notably Bob McDougall, George Cloy and David Mathieson. The town also featured in the cult 1973 horror film 'The Wicker Man'. Several parts of the town can be easily recognised in the film.
