Getting to Kirkcudbright

Kirkcudbright is in the heart of Galloway, one of the most scenic areas of southern Scotland. The town lies south of Castle Douglas and Dalbeattie, in the part of Dumfries and Galloway known as the Stewartry, situated at the mouth of the River Dee, some six miles from the sea. It was the county town of the former county of Kirkcudbrightshire.

By road

It's a six or seven hours drive from London. From Manchester or Leeds, three hours, and from Glasgow or Edinburgh, two hours. Once you get into Dumfries you'll find that the country roads are quiet, making touring the area a pleasure. Kirkcudbright lies 25 miles west of Dumfries on the coast south of the A75. We are a popular destination from Ireland, being only 50 miles from the ports at Stranraer and Cairnryan.
