Broughton House and Garden Kirkcubright

Broughton House and Garden is located in the town of Kirkcubright in Dumfries and Galloway, in the south west of Scotland. It is managed by the National Trust for Scotland.

It’s usually fairly easy to find free parking the Kirkcubright, either on the street or in the car park by the river.

I was keen to visit as Broughton House as it was the home of E A Hornel, one of the ‘Glasgow Boys’ group of artists, in the early 20th century. There are lots of his paintings on display in the rooms of the house.


Hornel’s studio was an extension to the original Broughton House.

There’s a lovely view of the garden from the dining room.

The garden at Broughton House is so beautiful.

The seating area was surrounded by tulips.

There are views over the tidal River Dee from the bottom of the garden.

I wish that I could have spent more time at Broughton House and Garden, but I’d arrived around 3.40pm and closing time was 5pm.
