Kirkcudbright, Scotland’s Artists Town, sits beside the estuary of the River Dee on the coast of the Solway Firth. Between 1850 and 1950 the Town was established as an artists colony due to the quality of the coastal light. The town provides a range of services including: restaurants and pubs, supermarkets, independent specialist shops and galleries, a primary and secondary school, health centre, tennis, sailing and golf clubs as well as many other amenities. The harbour is a main feature in the centre of the town, and there are delightful riverside walks as well as a renowned “blue-flag” marina providing excellent sailing and motor boat facilities. The nearby market towns of Castle Douglas and Dumfries have a broader range of shops and services.
The Southwest of Scotland is well known for its mild climate, attractive unspoilt countryside and abundance and diversity of its recreational and sporting pursuits. A wide variety of beaches, coastal paths and beautiful walks are within easy reach of the property. There are water sports and sailing on nearby Loch Ken as well as on the Solway, along with excellent hill walking in the nearby Galloway Hills and cycling along some of the numerous cycle routes, as well as a nationally renowned network of mountain biking routes in the hills and forest parks making up the Seven Stanes centres. The Galloway Forest Park, well known for its beauty and tranquillity, is also recognised as Britain’s First Dark Sky Park, and provides astronomers phenomenal views of the stars with an Observatory. For golf enthusiasts, as well as the 18 hole course in the town, there are several courses within a short driving distance.
Communications to the area are very good. There are railway stations in both Dumfries and Lockerbie, and the M74 motorway is about 50 miles distant. Regular flights to continental Europe depart from Prestwick Airport, which is 65 miles to the north.
