Auchengool House is a traditional semi-detached townhouse in a very central location in the heart of Kirkcudbright’s historic and cultural district but has reached a cycle in its life where it requires extensive refurbishment to return it to its former splendour. Ideally located within easy level walking distance of the town centre and all attractions and facilities, it commands a prominent position at the end of the town’s historic High Street enjoying an excellent outlook towards the harbour and bridge.
Kirkcudbright is an attractive harbour town situated on the banks of the River Dee. The town itself is of historic and architectural interest with its ancient High Street, Tolbooth Arts Centre, Stewartry Museum and numerous galleries including the recently opened Kirkcudbright Galleries. Long frequented by artists, Kirkcudbright was home to the renowned artist, EA Hornel, one of the “Glasgow Boys” who lived in nearby Broughton House, now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland. The town has a good range of local shops and professional services as well as well-regarded primary and secondary schools.
