The Kirkcudbright area is a delightful environment for cyclists with its quiet roads running through beautiful countryside with rolling hills and spectacular views. The general atmosphere is peaceful and relaxing and the coastal area in particular has the benefit of a gentle, generally sunny micro-climate. Kirkcudbright town has a busy fishing harbour and marina and a flourishing colony of artists and crafts people which has earned it the title 'Artists' Town'. Other well known features of the town are the ruined castle, the pretty, pastel coloured houses, wide streets and free parking.
Kirkcudbright is easily accessible from the M6/M74 motorway system and from Stranraer and the Irish Sea ferries.
Throughout the summer a variety of entertainment is provided by Kirkcudbright Summer Festivities, ranging from Scottish Nights to Classic Car rallies, from Historic Walks to a Medieval Fayre. There is also an Annual Jazz Festival . There are many interesting shops and art galleries to browse as well as beautiful beaches to explore nearby.
Set amidst beautiful coastal countryside, accommodation is plentiful in the form of self catering cottages, guesthouses and hotels. We are also especially well served by a number of high quality caravan and camping sites.
