Welcome to Yellow Door

A pet-friendly self-catering cosy retreat in Kirkcudbright - Dumfries & Galloway. This lovingly restored 300 year-old two bedroom cottage sleeps up to four people in the picturesque harbour town of Kirkcudbright.

The historic Yellow Door is a pet friendly self-catering cosy artists’ retreat, which stands on the same cobbled wynd on which stained-glass artist EA Taylor and his wife, illustrator Jessie M King used to live.

The Yellow Door, along with the four other houses on this close, benefit from a good degree of privacy in a peaceful location which is central and convenient for the amenities of the bustling harbour town of Kirkcudbright.

Why Holiday in Kirkcudbright?

Kirkcudbright (pronounced kir-koo-bree) is a fascinating and genuinely pretty Scottish town. Attractive painted buildings in a whole array of colours vie for attention along its broad streets. A stunning array of Architecture with buildings like the town hall, Parish Church, Greyfriars Church, the Tolbooth, the Old Jail, Broughton House and MacLellan’s Castle.

A stroll along to the harbour to see the fishing boats arriving or preparing to leave, along with a chance to eat what they catch from the fish and chip shop in harbour square completes the charming effect that Kirkcudbright has on you.
