Broughton House & Garden

Broughton House & Garden is situated in the center of Kirkcudbright, an historic town and artist community on the Galloway coast. This remarkable museum, incorporating both original interiors and exhibition rooms, is dedicated to the life and work of E A Hornel as an artist, dealer and antique designer.

Outside, Hornel and his sister crafted a beautiful garden with expansive views over the port of Kirkcudbright and the River Dee. This mature garden is now a gentle maze of walking blocks, wisteria-covered paths and Edwardian charm.
