Welcome to Kirkmichael Village

Kirkmichael is a small, friendly and picturesque conservation village nestling between the green fields of Carrick, Ayshire and the hills and woods of the Galloway forest park.

Our visitors often remark on what a friendly and sociable place this is and many community events take place throughout the year. Why not make a visit to Kirkmichael part of your trip to South West Scotland, whether it’s a day out or a touring holiday?

Our Newsletter

Villagers contribute to an occasional newsletter, the "Kirkmichael Klarion", available from the Community Shop, which helps keep people up to date with the latest news and events in and around Kirkmichael Village.

If you would like all the latest information be sure to look in at our website regularly!

What We Offer

The Community Shop

We have a cosy community run shop with a cafe renowned for its home baking. The shop stocks local produce wherever possible, including meat, free range eggs, fresh fruit and vegetables and plants in season as well as a small range of local artworks. 

The Local Church

There is a historic church with a splendid Arts and Crafts stained glass window by Christopher Whitworth Whall. In the kirkyard are many fascinating old gravestones, some of them older than the church itself. They include a memorial to a murdered covenanter believed to have been carved by ‘Old Mortality’ himself.

The Cottages

Many of the cottages in the village are more than 200 years old, in a variety of old Scots architectural styles, while a brand new eco friendly primary school is under construction, to serve a new generation of village children.

The Dyrock Burn

The Dyrock Burn flows prettily through the middle of the village and there is a large playing field which is suitable for family picnics.
