Coming for a holiday? About the Langholm, Eskdalemuir and Canonbie area

The most easterly town in the region of Dumfries and Galloway, Langholm is situated in the middle of the Eskdale valley.

LangholmA centre of the wool trade, Langholm recalls its more turbulent past each year with a colourful Commons Riding, where over two hundred horsemen ’ride the Marches’, to protect its boundaries. Today it is a market town, situated in a peaceful valley famous for its salmon and sea trout fishing. Visitors can visit a mill shop, and also the Border Fine Arts Gallery of ceramics.

The Hugh MacDiarmid trail tours Langholm, birthplace of the noted 20th Century poet. The Clan Armstrong Museum Trust traces the history of this formidable borders family and is a must if you have connections to the Armstrong name.

The valley beyond Langholm, on the B709, is said to have the most beautiful scenery in the south of Scotland. So remote and undisturbed is it that the Tibetans chose it as a place to build the only Tibetan Buddhist Temple in Britain (Kagyu Samye Ling Monastery ) - the oriental lines and turrets look peacefully at home amid the gentle rolling hills of Dumfries and Galloway.

Further up the valley are meteorological and seismological stations and the name of Eskdalemuir is familiar to people who listen to broadcast weather reports.

At the southern end of Eskdale near the junction with Liddesdale, once the lawless ’Debatable Lands’ (these dales were the homes and lairs of the 'border reivers' taking advantage of the remote country). Gilnockie Tower is nearby with the largest and highest (60ft up) Armstrong Library and Museum in the world. Also, 2 miles south of Canonbie is the 16th Century Scot's Dyke - a trench dug to mark the border between Scotland and England at a time when the feuds raged.
