Kirkcowan is a single street village in Dumfries and Galloway.



Most of the dwellings are traditional, low, single storey cottages and this photo from 1930 shows that they have tiled or slated rooves. An earlier photograph from 1860 (http://www.scran.ac.uk/database/record.php?usi=000-000-100-041-C) shows that once these had all been thatched with straw or heather.
