Visit Broughton House in Kirkcudbirght
The 18th century <b>Broughton House</b> was once home to the famed artist E.A. Hornel, whose work can be seen in the gallery on site, as well as at the National Galleries of Scotland, among others. While Hornel lived and worked in the elegant townhouse up until his death in 1933, today the house is owned by the National Trust for Scotland, and guests can enjoy an art collection that includes pieces from around the world, and a theme inspired by the artist’s time in Japan.
