GENERAL INFORMATION

67a St Mary Street is a centrally located flat extending over two floors. Situated in a late 19th century building, the flat has been very tastefully renovated and retains many period features. There is excellent storage space within the flat itself and additional space available in the coal cellar at ground floor level. The flat benefits from gas central heating throughout.

Kirkcudbright is an attractive harbour town situated on the banks of the River Dee. The town itself is of historic and architectural interest with its ancient High Street, Tolbooth Arts Centre, Stewartry Museum and numerous galleries. Long frequented by artists, Kirkcudbright was home to the renowned artist, EA Hornel, one of the "Glasgow Boys". This tradition is maintained today by a flourishing colony of painters and craft workers which has led to Kirkcudbright being named the "Artists' Town".

Kirkcudbright enjoys a wide variety of mainly family-owned shops, pubs, hotels and restaurants, whilst offering a wide range of facilities, including its own golf course, marina, swimming pool and an active summer festivities programme, including a jazz festival and tattoo.
