Conveniently located about a mile outside Borgue which has a small but well regarded primary school and village Hotel with the former county town of Kirkcudbright and main facilities being only about 4 miles to the north along the coastal road.
The Parish of Borgue is agriculturally productive and extremely attractive , incorporating the renowned shoreline around Ross Bay,Brighouse Bay and the Carrick Shore . The principal population was always grouped around the extensive farms and accordingly the Village of Borgue itself is surprisingly small dominated by the large and imposing Parish Church.
Nearby 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 it was home to the renowned artist E.A Hornel, one of the “Glasgow Boys”and has a long artistic tradition . Kirkcudbright is popular with tourists , attracted by the well renowned galleries and maintains a flourishing colony of artists and craft workers which has led to it being called the “Artists’ Town”.
