We visited Kirkcudbright briefly on our recent holiday in Dumfries. It's a lovely town and is notable for being an Artists Town. Sandy on his blog Witterings has posted a lot recently about the Arts and Crafts of Kirkcudbright - you can read more here, here and here.
This photo shows one of the sculptures from the recent Sculpture Symposium in Kirkcudbright. You can read more about the symposium on Sandy's blog here, here and here.
After wandering round a very damp Kirkcudbright, which was full of swallows, house martins and swifts, we went down the coast a wee bit and had a walk though a lovely area of boggy coastline. It was worth the wet shoes to see the wonderful flowers, two roe deer hiding in the undergrowth and several sedge warblers singing and dancing in the reeds.
