Kirkcudbright, is a town in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.
The town lies southwest of Castle Douglas and Dalbeattie, in the part of Dumfries and Galloway known as the Stewartry, at the mouth of the River Dee, some six miles (10 km) from the sea. It was the county town of the former county of Kirkcudbrightshire, also known as the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright.
An early rendition of the name of the town was Kilcudbrit, derived from the Scottish Gaelic "Cille Chuithbeirt" (Chapel of Cuthbert), the Anglo-Saxon saint whose mortal remains were kept here for seven years between exhumation at Lindisfarne and re-interment at Chester-le-Street. The "kirk" element is Old Norse in origin and itself superseded the termchirch which was derived from Old English.
Spottiswood, in his account of religious houses in Scotland, mentions that the Franciscans or Grey Friars had been established at Kirkcudbright from the 12th century. No traces of the Greyfriars or Franciscan dwellings remain in the parish of Kirkcudbright.
