Hotels in Kirkcudbright
The pretty town of Kirkcudbright sits at the mouth of the River Dee about six miles from the sea. It is in the stunning Scottish region of Dumfries and Galloway, which offers a wealth of natural beauty, heritage and culture to explore.
Everywhere you look in this unspoilt harbour settlement there are beautiful buildings and idyllic views. The name is derived from â€˜Kirk of St Cuthbert' which reflects the town's deep roots and significance to early Christianity. There was a monastery here as early as the year 1000. Kirkcudbright grew rich and successful in its early centuries, and by the 15th century over a quarter of Scotland's cloth exports were loaded at the Quays on the River Dee. A town wall was built in 1540 to protect this prosperous centre from the inevitable unwelcome visitors.
Following a period of decline during the 16th and 17th centuries, Kirkcudbright rose again in the 1800s, helped by the arrival of the railway. It also became a mecca for artists, drawn to the uncommonly picturesque architecture and sublime natural setting.
Today, from Kirkcudbright hotels, you can really appreciate the town's intricate history and periods of major economic significance, through the exceptional array of buildings and streets. The view across the River Dee to the old harbour is unforgettable, but explore further and you'll uncover many gems. There are the ruins of 16th-century McLellan's Castle, the elegant Broughton House and Garden, a treasure run by the National Trust for Scotland, and the Old Town Jail, which is now part of the Tolbooth Arts Centre. The whole town can be appreciated as a landmark, as its charming streets and stunning waterside are singularly unspoilt.
Restaurants and cafÃ©s
This hidden treasure of a Scottish town is also well situated to bring you fine regional cuisine. Dumfries and Galloway is renowned for the quality of its beef, lamb and pork, plus there is a wonderful range of freshly caught seafood on offer as well.
You might try Castle Restaurant, where the menu is shaped by freshly prepared regional culinary riches in the shadow of the castle. Kirkpatricks Restaurant is a fine place to eat where the owners regularly take ideas from the 17th and 18th centuries and give them an innovative contemporary twist.
For a memorable coffee stop, you could visit the Tolbooth Coffee Shop, which is located in the old Sheriff Court and prison along with the award-winning Tolbooth Art Centre. Real home baking is a speciality here.
