Broughton House & Garden

The home of ‘Glasgow Boy’ Hornel sits in a Japanese-style garden and hosts an impressive collection of art.

Planning your visit

There are a number of cafés and tearooms in Kirkcudbright.

On-street parking is available outside the house (although the High Street can be busy); further parking is available around the town and in nearby car parks.

Dogs on a lead are allowed in the garden, and we always have a bowl of fresh water at the front door on hot days.

For more information about planning your visit please see our frequently asked questions.

If you’d like to speak to us we can be contacted by email: broughtonhouse@nts.org.uk or telephone 01557 330437.

Accessibility

  • There are steps up to the front door without a handrail.
  • Garden benches are available on the lawns and overlooking the River Dee. 
  • Part of the garden can also be viewed from the Studio. 
  • The narrow garden paths are not suitable for wider wheelchairs or mobility scooters. 
  • The paving in the garden is very uneven and sometimes slippery.

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.
