Located in the picturesque coastal town of Kirkcudbright, The Boathouse was built in the 1960s and has now been transformed into a charming bolthole with unbeatable, even unforgettable, views of the river and marina.
Kirkcudbright is a beautiful historic town in the south west of Scotland and tucked away off a lane at the end of the High Street you will find The Boathouse, a place that provides peace and privacy as well as an enviable location just moments from shops, galleries, cafes, pubs, restaurants and general amenities. Recently renovated with new fixtures, fittings and furniture, the house is open-plan and contemporary, and the outlook from the windows (especially at high tide) is nothing short of breath-taking. And on your doorstep you have the rolling hills and rocky coastline of Dumfries & Galloway, just waiting to be explored.
Kirkcudbright is located at the mouth of the River Dee, with a picturesque marina and a working harbour that is used by a local fishing fleet. Known as an artists’ town, Kirkcudbright has long been a retreat for those attracted by its wonderful scenery, pastel coloured buildings and unique quality of light, so there are plenty of galleries to while away the hours in. If you’re feeling energetic you’ll find a swimming pool, tennis courts, squash courts and a golf course nearby, just outside the town there’s an impressive Conservation Park, and it’s a short drive to pony treks, canoeing routes, castles, gardens, forest trails and the sandy beaches of the Solway Coast. You certainly won’t be bored!
The house is accessed by a private pedestrian lane but parking is available on the High Street. For information on mooring your boat please contact the owner.
