The Community Owned Kirkcudbright Information Centre Opens Its Doors

The new improved Kirkcudbright Information Centre will re-open in Kirkcudbright’s Harbour Square on Friday 28th May. Now owned and run by the Kirkcudbright Development Trust, the Centre will be open daily to visitors.

Manned by over thirty Kirkcudbright Development Trust volunteers, the Information Centre will provide all types of local information about accommodation, attractions, shops, and services. Locals and visitors to Kirkcudbright will be able to find all types of local information, from dog-friendly cafés, the best local walks, and tickets for events, festivals, and nearby attractions.

The Centre will also be selling an excellent range of local maps, books, crafts, and gifts. The recently re-published Kirkcudbright Town Walk booklet will be available from the Information Centre. It provides walkers with a fascinating guided walk around the charming and historical town of Kirkcudbright, providing information about the architecture and history of the town while highlighting landmarks and points of interest.

In other good news, the recently launched ‘Scotland Starts Here’ tourism initiative which covers the areas of Midlothian, the Scottish Borders, and Dumfries and Galloway, includes a ‘Kirkcudbright Town Trail’ on its new website, which can be downloaded as a mobile phone app for self-guided tours. Prepared by the Kirkcudbright History Society, the 2.5km trail features 12 places of historic interest on a circular route from Moat Brae down both lengths of the High Street to St Mary Street and back to the Harbour Square.
