That direction led us to Kirkcudbright(pronounce Kir- coo- bree). At this point in my trip, I'd lived in Edinburgh, ridden through the Highlands, and seen one of Scotland's beautiful islands. Now, I was to witness a quaint Scottish town. And it certainly was the quaintest, prettiest little town I'd been to.
We were unlucky finding a Bed and Breakfast so, in exasperation, we pulled up to a family-run hotel and stayed there. Sadly, I cannot remember it's name, but it was wonderful. Each room basically looked like a small, Victorian apartment. The owner was also the manager, the accountant, the check-in, and the chef of a wonderful breakfast buffet. The food was fried similar to the Ulster fry from Belfast, but was even more delicious.
The town itself, combined with the Scottish countryside we passed, put us under its sleepy spell, and we enjoyed slow strolls along the waterfront. It was the kind of town where everyone gave my brother and I funny looks as we were clearly outsiders, yet greeted us with a "Good morning!" and a smile. It really just seemed out of a storybook.
