Selkirk Arms Hotel

Top choice hotel in Kirkcudbright
Image by

What a haven of hospitality this is. Rooms look great with a stylish purply finish and slate-floored bathrooms. Wood furnishings and views over the back garden give some of them an extra rustic appeal. There's a good restaurant as well as a cute gin and prosecco bar. Staff are happy to be there, and you will be, too.
