The views continually change with the tide and season so you will never get tired of gazing out of the large windows. It is just a short walk into Kirkcudbright, known as the ’Artist’s Town’ as in the late 19th and early 20th-century it was home to many celebrated artists; the town had a long association with the Glasgow art movement. With local galleries still holding regular exhibitions of paintings and craftwork, it is still seen as a hub of contemporary art. More recently the town has provided a backdrop for a number of television shows and film including the cult 1973 horror film ’The Wicker Man’. There is nothing scary about the town itself though which is home to a range of independent shops, a castle and a bustling, working harbour with a scallop fleet. The area has a great number of sandy beaches providing great coastal walks with stunning backdrops. During the summer there are a whole host of events taking place including the Kirkcudbright Tattoo and firework display, the famous Riding of the Marshes, a children’s festival and a food festival. The quiet country roads are ideal for gentle bike rides, or if you fancy something a bit more rigorous you can tackle the 7Stanes, mountain biking heaven! Nearby the Galloway Activity Centre has exhilarating activities set on the banks of Loch Ken from paddle boarding and windsurfing to laser tag and climbing. For a more relaxed day why not take in a local museum, the wildlife park or a nature reserve with fantastic bird colonies. You’ll never get bored in the area and at the end of the day Byre Cottage is a warm and comfortable base to rest your weary head. Beach 3 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
