My first trip to Scotland and I was not disappointed. The little town of Kirkcudbright was charming with a good mix of shops to poke around in. We chose stay in the Townhouse, which was very well situated. The house was sparkling clean for our arrival. The furniture was comfortable, well looked after and there was everything that you could need and more. The decor suited us very well, bathrooms very modern, kitchen up to date and all in all a very nice house to stay in. It was somewhat chilly in the evenings but the house has central heating which made it very cosy. I would stay there again especially as there was a very nice pub within easy walking distance and a fish a chip shop that sold everything from a take away fish supper to eat in 3 course meals and even ice cream cornetts for hot sunny days!! The local people were extremely friendly and always wanted to at least say hello or stop for a chat. Plenty of places to visit and we saw 7 red kites on just 1 day alone. The scenery around Kirkcudbright is stunning. My only quibble was the fact that we did find the bed mattresses very hard and uncomfortable, perhaps a topper would solve the problem. One last comment the garden is very very small, really just a strip of path, and would be very cramped for a large party going to the house.
