Here’s my travel guide on things to do in Kirkcudbright, a quaint seaside town in the Dumfries & Galloway area of South-West Scotland – covering not only things to do, but also where to eat and drink (the best restaurants, cafés and pubs), stuff to see, where to stay (the best accommodation I’ve found!) and the best days out.
This guide has been hard for me to write because Kirkcudbright is (along with Kirkby Lonsdale) my favourite and most important childhood holiday destination. Even now I’m in my 30s and don’t go as often, I still feel like I know it really well, and that just increases the pressure to do it justice on the old bloggery.
Hopefully, this post gives you a little insight into why Kirkcudbright is so good and some useful tips if you’re planning a trip there. Most people just zoom past Kirkcudbright on the motorway and miss out, but it’s an absolute hidden gem. It’s got Ballamory-style pastel coloured houses, fresh seafood to eat, all the local art you could ever want, and an actual castle.
I’ll try not to type 64721 words and bore you all to death… maybe. On to the things to do in Kirkcudbright…
