Good location for amenities and events in Kirkcudbright and surrounding areas. Cottage - inside and outside needs a little more attention and entrance to the car park area in front of the cottage isn't wide enough for a large car.More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. There´s nowhere like KBT in the sunshine - I´m not surprised you didn´t go very far. It is a shame that the Tourist Info. has closed - hopefully, it will re-open again in the near...More

Very conveniently placed cottage with a short walk to the harbour and shops. Rattra cottage was ideal for the lovely quiet holiday that we wanted, it was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed! We would recommend this holiday home.

About the neighbourhood
It is no coincidence that so many artists have chosen Kirkcudbright as their place of residence. Everywhere you turn there is a view worthy of painting and the town has changed little in the past 200 years so retains much of its original charm. Rattra Cottage is in a wonderful location right in the centre of Kirkcudbright within walking distance of shops, restaurants and pubs. In the High Street itself you will find galleries, craftshops, artists studios, a close leading to the marina and riverside views. There is also a 16th century castle just around the corner opposite the harbour. A range of facilities are available in the town such as a swimming pool and golf course and on the outskirts of town there is even a wildlife conservation park. A little further afield there are several beau...
How to get there
Fly to Prestwick Airport with Ryanair - hire a car for the 70 mile drive to Kirkcudbright. Nearest train station: Dumfries (27 miles) bus connections outside station. From south M6 to Gretna, then A75
