Coronavirus: Following the closure of our properties, all private and corporate hospitality events, including weddings, have unfortunately had to be cancelled until further notice. Our teams will be in touch with existing customers to discuss their options. If you’re having difficulty contacting us, please email

We’re also still busy responding to new enquiries for later in the year and beyond and would love to hear from you! Please contact us.

This elegant Scottish townhouse was the home and workplace of E A Hornel, one of the ‘Glasgow Boys’, from 1901 until 1933. Today, its inspirational surroundings provide a picturesque setting for intimate weddings, corporate events and private functions.

Located at the heart of Kirkcudbright (the Artists’ Town) in the south-west of Scotland, Broughton House was extended by Hornel to create a studio and art gallery.

Housing many of Hornel’s paintings, the Gallery is an exceptional setting for exclusive events. The mahogany panelling, magnificent stone fireplace and classical Parthenon friezes bring an air of elegance.
