The Church in Kirkcudbright


It is said that the original name of the town, Caer Cuabrit - the fort at the bend - was changed into one of similar sound but different meaning, Kirkcudbright - the Kirk of Cuthbert - in honour of Cuthbert, the illustrious Saxon saint, to whom the first Christian church here owed its foundation. We now have three churches in Kirkcudbright. The Parish Church, which was St Cuthbert's (Church of Scotland - Presbyterian) which is sited centrally in the Town; Greyfriars, The Scottish Episcopal Church at the Moat Brae near the Harbour and St Andrew and St Cuthberts, The Roman Catholic Church situated off the High Street up the lane between the Library and the Police Station.
