Can honestly say this is one of the best houses I've ever visited. Even on a day with drizzle the garden was fantastic. Could I live on the summer house or get a job there please? The house is a delight too. As NT members...More
Went with fellow NTS members while on a trip to Kirkcudbright, We are not particularly art lovers but there was planty of interest apart from the paintings. We particularly liked the gardens and will certainly make a return visit in future.

Having just visited the Kirkcudbright Galleries, next step was Broughton House. To my shame I’ve never visited before. My huge loss!!

The 350 bus gets you from Cairnryan to Stranraer. The 500 gets you to Gatehouse of Fleet and the 431 to Kirkcudbright, or go on to Castle Douglas and get the 502 to Kirkcudbright. Check the bus timetable for the best connection as there not much at Gatehouse if you have a wait and Castle Douglas has more cafes etc. A Discovery ticket may do all the routes.

Hi there. There is disabled access from the side lane but once you enter the building I am afraid that the facilities are in my opinion, not up to a satisfactory standard. There is no designated disabled parking. The garden is not fully accesible to disabled visitors. It has to do much better.
