Kirkcudbright Riding of the Marches

15th July 2022

Every effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the event information but we recommend contacting the event organisers before attending.

It was the year 1455 and Kirkcudbright was given Royal Burgh status by virtue of a charter granted by King James II. The Persuivant from the King and the Cornet together rode round the boundaries referred to in the charter. This act is recreated annually by the Kirkcudbright Cornet’s Club with their spectacular ceremony of the Riding of the Marches through the town ending in the Harbour Square.
