A very interesting house, lots of works of art in all the rooms. When I visited an artist was using the studio, with the smells of oils bring another dimension to the visit. The garden looks over the river with parts of it in the...More
Went round most of the galleries and Broughton House where it seemed we were the only visitors. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff and beautiful gardens. Be careful in the wet as the paths are very slippy.
We were in the area and decided to stop in as we have Royal Trust Memberships which allowed free entry, so what did we have to lose? Well, how wonderful that we did decide to stop in, because this house is a real gem, loaded...More
We only had an hour but wish we'd had longer! Really interesting and lovely small house to visit .......we really enjoyed finding out more about this ' Glasgow Boy' and we were not disappointed. We'd visited an exhibition in London about this group of artists...More
This was the home of an artist we had not heard of, nor his contemporaries The Glasgow Boys. So pleased to have made the discovery. The house was occupied by the artist until 1933 when he died and then his sister until 1950. The furniture...More
This was the home of the renowned artist Edward Atkinson Hornel. It's a tall, stone and pink lime-washed stone house in the High Street. Behind the house is a magnificent town garden leading right down to the estuary below. There are artefacts and indeed art...More
A well preserved house with a good selection of paintings and furniture giving a good feel of how the house used to be. I found the Japanese garden a surprise as I thought they are usually quite minimal and this one was like a jungle.
This is a small gem of a place in a beautiful area of South West Scotland. The house has many fabulous paintings and you can imagine why the area was and still is an inspiration to artists. The garden is beautifully kept, Both house and...More
This is a fascinating house. If you like Hornel's paintings you are in for a treat but it is so much more. After the house there is the garden which is an horticultural treasure trove.
If you are in Kirkcudbright then Broughton House is a...More

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... More
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.
