The Dumfries and Galloway region

Dumfries and Galloway is full of places of historical interest - castles, museums, monuments - too many to take in on one visit. It has a mild climate and you might even come across a palm tree. There is a host of outdoor activities to participate in from mountain-biking to diving.


Kirkcudbright is now known as the Artists' Town due to the fact that artists have been coming here for years to take advantage of the unique light they experience in and around the town. There are many galleries and exhibitions to be enjoyed not to mention craft -fairs and open studio events. There are facilities for all the family including a swimming pool, fitness trail, golf course, driving range and many more. Throughout the summer tourists can enjoy the 'Summer Festivities' which include historical walks and Scottish Nights and at the end of season there is the tattoo which attracts thousands of visitors.

"The thrill of the tides is mesmerising"

The boathouse is stunning. Right in the centre of Kirkcudbright, tucked away down a narrow pend (private lane) with back courtyard and a terrace virtually on the River Dee it is full of drama. At low … More

Good to hear you enjoyed your stay. The tides are indeed mesmerising whatever the weather. Our newly refurbished jetty is the ideal place to sit out and observe river life. We look forward to welcoming you again.

"Hidden gem in Kirkcudbright"

Walking along the High Street of Kirkcudbright you'll never spot the Boathouse. But walk down a side alley and it will open up to a court yard and the aptly named holiday let, sitting on the rive… More

Thank you for your lovely review. Glad to hear that you had a great winter weekend break and that you were able to enjoy the views from the jetty even at night by the heat of the chimenea.

"Ideal for a family that want more than a hotel"

We needed a base to visit nearby family. Our party was grandparents, us and our children aged 7 and 4. Fantastic attention to detail here and our boys soon found the toy bags and loved them. The morni… More

Thank you for your speedy review. Sounds like the Boathouse was ideal for your 3 generations of family. It's useful to have lots of space especially in winter when the days are short. Glad to hear the toys were popular!

"Amazing Property and Location"

Lovely property, perfect for a relaxing break.The views are amazing and we got completely lost watching the tides, fishing boats andwildlife. The weather was perfect and we took full advantage of the … More

Thank you for your lovely review of the house and the town. Glad to hear you all enjoyed the jetty (including the dog!)and that the fishing lines got some use. We have been sitting out on the jetty recently - mid November. With the chimenea lit it's just about warm enough even late at night.

This was a lovely house, very clean and lots of space. Nice big yard so if you bring bikes as there is the No.7 route going straight past the door, however there was loads of good routes and quiet roa… More

Your review is much appreciated. Thank you for letting cycling enthusiasts know that Kirkcudbright is a great place for biking and that the Boathouse yard is suitable for leaving bikes when not in use.

Felt we had to comment on how wonderful our stay was at the boathouse. From the minute we booked the service etc. was the best we could hope for. When we arrived we weren't disappointed. The plac… More

We very much appreciate your very generous review. Glad to hear you enjoyed your autumn break. October is a lovely month to be at the Boathouse as you can still sit out on the jetty and view the autumn colours at their best. And if you are unlucky enough to get some rain, there's plenty of room to spread out inside and enjoy the storm!

"Excellent accommodation"

The boathouse is ideal for families as there are 2 lounges and plenty of bathrooms! The accommodation is of a very high standard. I have stayed in many other self catering houses in Kirkcudbright and the boathouse is by far the best. I have booked for a third stay which says it all! Book with confidence, the ideal location to visit all the local attractions and there is the feature of being by the water to watch the boats go by and view amazing sunsets.

Thank you for your glowing review and booking with us again for next year. Glad to hear you all had a great time and enjoyed the space the Boathouse offers to families with teenagers. It has, indeed, been a summer of fabulous sunsets. Let's hope next year will be just as good!

"simply perfect!!"

just arrived home from staying here for a week. It was peaceful, picturesque and a home from home, the owners have thought of everything you could possibly need. The house was spacious, comfortable an… More

Thank you for writing such an enthusiastic review! We are very happy to hear that our guests love the house and town as much as we do.

"fantastic hidden treasure - indoor / outdoor lifestyle, views, peace, comfort,"

I loved staying here, it had all the comforts of home, clean, comfortable, welcoming and cosy. With the advantage of great views, and while we were there sunshine. Perfect. The little blue doorway … More

We very much appreciate your lovely review. Glad to hear you and your daughter had a great time and took advantage of the proximity to the beach. We look forward to welcoming you back for a winter break.

"Lovely cottage with fantastic views located in a lovely, historic town."

The Boat House looks to have been recently modernised to a very high standard and now provides really comfortable accommodation for up to six or eight. There probably quite a few holiday cottages to … More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for the Boathouse. Very glad that you enjoyed your repeat visit and that the views were as spectacular as you remembered. We'll now add deer to the list of wildlife to be spotted from the jetty! We look forward to hosting you again next year.
