About this location

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.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review at this busiest of times. Glad to hear you all enjoyed your stay in spite of the inclement weather. The Boathouse is indeed a great place to stay if you want to get away from it all but still have easy access to shops, cafes etc.

Perfect holiday home with a great view overlooking the estuary. Our family spent many evenings watching the tide coming in, keeping warm with the chimenea! There's was plenty of room for 5 of us … More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Happy to hear you all enjoyed yourselves, including the dogs and that you were able to take advantage of the jetty during a September which was as warm as mid-summer!

The Boathouse is located in wonderful setting looking out over the River Dee and over the Marina and harbour in Kirkcudbright. Birds (Heron, Shag & Sand Martins etc), tides sweeping in and out even… More

Thank you for your fantastic review. Glad to hear you enjoyed bird-watching from the refurbished jetty. Kirkcudbright is indeed a very friendly town with a good choice of restaurants - one for each night of the week, in fact, for those who want a rest from cooking!

"Wonderful accommodation, special location"

The three bedrooms and 2 lounges all have a view direct on to the tidal estuary. The three bathrooms each have a loo and a shower. The Co-op supermarket is less than 5 minutes walk away. It's a v… More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review after your short break. The summer weeks do get booked up quite quickly and we generally do short breaks from Nov. to March only but occasionally we accept them in summer. Keep an eye on the News and Offers page of the Boathouse website for details.

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.
