The event has passed.

Through the summer the History Society offers weekly guided tours of Kirkcudbright’s historic kirkyard (a little east of the town on the Gelston road), which was the site of the original Northumbrian ‘kirk of Cuthbert’ which even Ailred of Rievaulx described as an ancient building in the later 12th-century! It is also the site of Scotland’s most southerly Hiberno-Norse burials.
As a taster you might like to watch this video which gives an informative overview of the history of the site and describes several of the people laid to rest .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szpuOeRO7yQ
