The 17th century Tolbooth, which previously served as the town's Council Offices, Burgh and Sheriff Court and prison, is now home to an award-winning art centre depicting the story of Kirkcudbright's artist colony through a fantastic audio-visual show and the permanent display of work from some of Kirkcudbright's most famous artists, including E.A. Hornel and Jessie M. King.
On the top floor, you will find a gallery presenting contemporary art and craft exhibitions, along with an annual exhibition programme which showcases the creative talents of artists and craft workers from across the region and further afield.
With a café offering delicious home baking, and a gift shop retailing artists' prints, paintings and crafts, the Tolbooth Art Centre is an experience not to be missed.
