Venue DescriptionThis site is closed until Spring 2021. We’re working hard to gradually reopen the places you love while making sure the experience is safe for everyone. Find out more about our reopening plans: https://www.historicenvironment.scot/our-reopening-plans-and-covid-19-response/. Explore the impressive residence of a powerful family in the heart of Kirkcudbright and the vaulted ground floor rooms in which their servants once worked. Look for the laird's lug, a spy hole in the great hall though which the lord could eavesdrop on his guests.
Approach to site From the site entrance it is approximately 50m to the visitor centre on a smooth hard surface and then another 50m to the castle entrance. Visitor Centre The visitor centre and shop have step-free access. Monument The castle entrance has a stone door threshold. The ground floor is mostly level and includes a reconstruction display in the kitchen. There is little natural light in the ground floor rooms. The first floor is reached by a straight stone stair of 17 steps with a single handrail. There is a single stone step up into the great hall from the landing.
