Looking closely at the artworks in this gallery, can you find a special badge which can be worn by only one person at a certain time and who is important for Kirkcudbright?
This badge is usually made of silver with a layer of gold over it, and it is attached to a chain and hangs low around your neck. The person who wears this badge, the Provost, is important, as he or she can make changes to the place where they live to make it a nicer and better place to live.
