Old Quarry is a detached two storey house built in approximately 1975 but which has been subsequently improved and extended providing good sized family accommodation. The property is set in good sized yet easily maintained mature garden grounds and enjoys a southerly aspect. Though out of town, it is an easy walk or cycle into the town centre.
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. Long frequented by artists, Kirkcudbright was home to the renowned artist, EA Hornel, one of the “Glasgow Boys”. This tradition is maintained today by a flourishing colony of painters and craft workers and has led to Kirkcudbright being named the “Artists’ Town”.
The southwest of Scotland is a distinctly rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline. The area has a good range of sport and outdoor activities with excellent opportunities for golf, shooting and fishing.
