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.
