Broughton House nestles in the ancient heart of the picturesque town of Kirkcudbright, on the banks of the River Dee in Dumfries and Galloway in south-west Scotland. From 1901 to 1933, the house was the home and studio of Edward Atkinson Hornel (1864–1933), a native of Kirkcudbright, and one of the most innovative and successful artists to live and work in Scotland in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Behind the pink lime-washed walls a delightfully uplifting collection of art, ceramics, furniture and literature lies waiting to be discovered, together with an enchanting Japanese-inspired garden, which was also partly designed by Hornel.
