Kirkcudbright ©
Kirkcudbright, is a town and parish in Kirkcudbrightshire, of which it is traditionally the county town, within Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.The town lies southwest of Castle Douglas and Dalbeattie at the mouth of the River Dee, some 4mi from the Irish Sea.HistoryAn early rendition of the name of the town was Kilcudbrit; this derives from the Gaelic Cille Chuithbeirt meaning "chapel of Cuthbert", the saint whose mortal remains were kept at the town between their exhumation at Lindisfarne and reinterment at Chester-le-Street.Spottiswood, in his account of religious houses in Scotland, mentions that the Franciscans or Grey Friars had been established at Kirkcudbright from the 12th century. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kirkcudbright: Smugglers Cove Gift Shop (in Portpatrick), Port Logan (Logan Botanic Garden & Port Logan Lighthouse) and Castle Kennedy Gardens (in Stranraer). The adventure continues: explore the historical opulence of Threave Castle, admire the natural beauty at Threave Garden, visit a coastal fixture at Mull of Galloway Lighthouse, and get your game on at Cream O' Galloway.
