No trip to Kirkcudbright is complete without a visit to the Stewartry Museum. The Stewartry is the old name for Kirkcudbright and the surrounding area.
The museum collects local items, from birds and animals, to butter churns and communion tokens.
It is slowly being modernised, with the beautiful handwritten captions being replaced by printed ones.
Look beneath the blinds on the balcony to find exquisite collections of seashells, butterflies and birds eggs.
