We had a family holiday party staying at Rattray Cottage - five of us in total - and the configuration of the cottage suited us down to the ground. It's really close to Kirkcudbright centre, so convenient for a quick nip down to the Co-op or popping down the pub for a drink. The shower room downstairs and bathroom upstairs...

Rattra Cottage is ideally located in a quiet spot very close to the town centre. There are plenty of lovely individual shops to browse through as well as cafes and restaurants. Excellent food at Polarbites, Selkirk Arms Hotel, the Auld Alliance and Mulberries Café. Threave Gardens nearby is a must. Very close to some excellent beaches as well. Our fourth...

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... more
