The Masonic Arms is a great meeting place!

Many use the pub as a place to have meetings, The Haill Six Incorporated Trades of Kirkcudbright being amongst them. Established in 1422 it was enacted that “every craft in the town should choose a wise man” Also the local Cornets Club, which is behind the organisation of the annual Riding of the Marches, an event which happens in July and dates back to the time of Kirkcudbright being established as a Royal borough in 1455.
