A unique location off the historic High Street overlooking Kirkcudbright marina and harbour with far reaching views of the Galloway Hills. Sit out on the jetty and watch the yachts or the fishing boats approaching harbour. Or get out the binoculars and spot the cormorants. Fabulous views from all the bedrooms and both sitting rooms. Enjoy a barbecue on the completely private, sunny patio. Spacious accommodation on one level with plenty of room for 8. 3 bathrooms so no waiting around to get in the shower! Very quiet and peaceful but only 3 minute's walk from all amenities. Bed linen, towels and heating included....A unique location off the historic High Street overlooking Kirkcudbright marina and harbour with far reaching views of the Galloway Hills.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your short break at the Boathouse. You can certainly do a lot in just a few days as you don't have to go very far to find plenty of places of interest.

Very good directions, so easy to find. Lovely, restful riverside setting: very relaxing, with great views of boats & tides coming & going. Some spectacular sunsets. Plenty of space for our three generation family of six. The 'studio' is equipped well with some basic games,...More

Thank you for your lovely review. You were certainly lucky with the weather - probably the best week so far this year. The Boathouse jetty is an idea place for enjoying the sunset. Hope to see you back again!
