March 2021: Covid-19 and the ongoing restrictions have affected life in Kirkcowan, as with everywhere else, and there are currently no groups or clubs meeting physically. The Village Hall and Pub have been shut since last year and church congregations are limited. The Primary school is now gradually admitting more pupils. The Scottish Government rules and guidelines will dictate how soon different aspects of life can resume.
This website provides information & news about present-day Kirkcowan, a rural village in Dumfries & Galloway, southwest Scotland. The aim is to cover news, events & activities, clubs & groups, organisations & businesses, and anything else that might be useful or interesting to residents and visitors alike.
Run on a voluntary basis, we hope to help people find & share current information quickly and easily, but the accuracy, quantity and relevance of information will depend on input from group organisers and the wider community.
