Kirkcudbright Visitor Information Center opens for the first time in 2021

The Kirkcudbright Information Center reopens on Friday.

The Harbor Square site has been closed for several months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But the facility, which is run by volunteers from the Kirkcudbright Development Trust, will welcome returning people from Friday.

Helen Henderson, of the trust, said: “We are all delighted to open the information center to the public. Now is the perfect time as we all begin to welcome visitors back to Kirkcudbright and the area.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone, locals and visitors alike, and sharing information about the city, its attractions and the wonderful things to see and do here in this region.

The center was previously run by VisitScotland, but they shut down the site in 2019 with the confidence that took it over later in the year.



Elaine Wannop helps prepare the center to reopen.

There are now more than 30 assistants who ensure its opening every day.

It was enhanced during the lockdown and offers information on accommodation, attractions, shops and services, as well as details on dog-friendly cafes, local walks, and tickets to events and attractions.

This includes the recently republished Kirkcudbright Town Walk booklet which provides details on a fascinating walk as well as information on the city’s architecture and history while highlighting monuments and points of interest.

Another route is also available through the new Scotland Starts Here tourist program which features a Kirkcudbright Town Trail on its new website which can also be downloaded as a mobile phone app.

The 2.5 mile walk was prepared by the Kirkcudbright History Society and includes 12 places of historical interest on a circular route from Moat Brae on both lengths of High Street to St Mary Street and back to Harbor Square.
