This attractive fishing town by the River Dee has a laid-back atmosphere and is a magnet for artists with its pastel hued fishermans cottages and its picturesque harbour. Lying on the outskirts is a conservation park that is home to a vast array of animals from all over the world. If you are after some peace and tranquility and to slow down from everyday noise then this is the destination for you. From more tranquil pursuits such as fishing, golfing and walking to a lively festival calender that is packed with food festivals, Arts and Crafts trails and Classic Car Rally. With regular farmer's markets you can shop locally sourced produce and head back to your Kirkcudbright cottage to kick back and relax with your loved ones.
