Established as a Royal Burgh in 1455, Kirkcudbright has always been supported by a busy fishing trade. Behind the harbour the streets have housed generations of creative artists, a tradition maintained today by a flourishing colony of painters and craftworkers. This has led to it being called "The Artists' Town". Other well known features of the town are the pastel coloured houses and wide streets, and the wide selection of mainly family owned shops, with free parking all over town. More information here.
Wigtown was officially designated as Scotland's National Book Town in 1998 and is now home to a wide range of book-related businesses. A book lovers haven – and with over quarter of a million books to choose from, old and new. It is impossible to escape empty-handed.
