I suppose it's going to be be pot luck with what's on display. Sadly there wasn't anything of interest to me on this visit. Maybe next time.

It has a lovely gift shop and tea room on the ground floor. Unfortunately we came on a day when one art installation had been removed and the next one not yet set up.

An interesting centre for knowledge on Kbt Artists with video screening the story of Kirkcudbright Artists currently being updated. John Paul Jones jail cell might be a good idea but alas no!

The history and architecture of this building overpower the artistry inside. We were here on a day right before an art festival. We were told there might be an exhibit on the middle floor to see. That was the welcome. We found our way through....More
