  Kirkcudbrightshire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kirkcudbrightshire (pronounced Kir-COO-bri-shir; Siorrachd Chille Chuithbheirt in Gaelic), is a traditional county of south-western Scotland, bounded on the north and north-west by Ayrshire, on the west and southwest by Wigtownshire, on the south and southeast by the Irish Sea and the Solway Firth, and on the east and northeast by Dumfriesshire.
The name Kirkcudbrightshire as alternative to Stewartry of Kirkcudbright appears to have been invented by the Royal Mail in the 19th century.
Kirkcudbrightshire became part of the Dumfries and Galloway Region in 1975, as the oddly-named District of Stewartry (which retained a district council until 1996).

A movement was, however, shortly afterwards set on foot to form the present roadway to Southwick Station to connect with the Kirkbean district, and receiving support from Southwick House and other influential quarters, the road was opened and a suitable Station formed.
The railway from Dumfries to Castle-Douglas traverses one of the most picturesque parts of Kirkcudbrightshire, and one of the most notable structures in the nineteen miles is the Goldielea Viaduct, which, in respect of height, workmanship, and picturesque surroundings, compares favourably with either the Carronbridge Viaduct or the noted bridge at Ballochmyle in Ayrshire.
The Cairn Valley Railway was opened in 1905, and the traffic still continuing to expand, even the present large accommodation has become cramped, and for some time excavations have been proceeding at the north end of the Station with a view to the shunting lines being extended in the near future.

Because the estuary of the River Fleet is very shallow, tides go out typically for half a mile, and in sunny weather come in over warm sand, which warms the sea quickly.
Many boats, dinghies, etc, are launched from these and kept on moorings or above high tide, but trailers need the assistance of the farmer who keeps an old tractor for the purpose.
