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.

Appreciate you taking the time to write a review. The Boathouse is definitely in a unique location - so private and at the same time within easy access of shops, cafes, galleries. Autumn is always a good time for a break in D&G. Hope to...More

Stayed for a week at the beginning of May 2015. I booked many months in advance to provide us with a base for a tour of Wicker Man filming locations. Great communications from owner and absolutely no problems. The Boathouse is very comfortable and very...More

Happy to hear the Boathouse provided a comfortable base for your Wicker Man film location tour. Thankfully, Kirkcudbright people are a bit more welcoming than the locals in the Wicker Man!
