About the location


Kirkcudbright 5 miles; Dumfries 32 miles.

The quaint hamlet of Borgue has a pub and is situated five miles south west of Kirkcudbright. The historic and picturesque town of Kirkcudbright sits on the banks of the tidal waters of the River Dee, on the north Solway shore. Established as a Royal Burgh in 1455, giving it status to trade with ports outside Scotland, Kirkcudbright has always been supported by a busy fishing trade. Behind this working harbour, its wide streets and pastel coloured houses, a mix of Georgian villas and Victorian townhouses, make for a very attractive town centre, complete with the ruined McLellan’s Castle. Also worth a visit is the interesting Stewartry Museum, housing a collection of assorted items representing the life and times on the Solway coast. Kirkcudbright is also known as the artists’ town, established by Edward Hornel in the late nineteenth century and still the case today, with a fine collection of art galleries, crafts, cafés and antique shops. The area offers a quiet and relaxing atmosphere with attractive coastal landscapes and plenty to offer the whole family.

Larchbank Cottage is a beautiful place to stay for holiday makers, retreat seekers and spiritual wonderers, set in the breath-taking and characterful landscape of Dumfries and Galloway and is within easy reach of sandy beaches, rich farmland, heather hills, lochs and forests which is ideal for walkers, cyclists or just relaxing.
