Places to eat & drink in Kirkcudbright.

Pronounced ‘Kir-coo-bree' (the Church of St Cuthbert), this fascinating port on the River Dee (not to be confused with the Aberdeenshire River Dee of "Royal Deeside" fame) is dominated by a church spire, a castle and the Gothic tower of a 15th century tollbooth which was used to humiliate criminals by exposing them to the townsfolk. One of those inmates was John Paul Jones, the great naval hero of the American Revolution. The cottage where he lived can be found at Arbigland Gardens. The town has always attracted artists and has numerous galleries as well as the Stewartry Museum.

Kirkcudbright's churchyard contains a monument to Billy Marshal, the self-styled ‘king of the Galloway tinkers' who died in 1790 at the age of 120 (or so it is said) having had seven wives.

It was in the Cistercian Dundrennan Abbey where Mary Queen Of Scots spent her last night on Scottish soil. The abbey was founded by David l and stands in a small, secluded valley.
