Welcome to Langholm

....for your first taste of Scotland!

The ancient Burgh of Langholm (1621) is a bonnie 17th century woollen mill town, nestling beneath the imposing Whita Hill on the banks of the River Esk.
Only a few miles over the Border, Langholm, the ‘Muckle Toon’ is your first stop on the historic A7 route to Edinburgh – a favourite of the Romans and invading English armies of yesteryear and perfect for your first taste of Scotland!
Langholm, with its rich history and stunning landscapes is ideal staycation country. You can take leisurely riverside and woodland walks or be more active, hiking or biking on the surrounding hills and the famous Langholm Moor with its unique wildlife.

Whether you’re travelling north or south, having your first or last taste of Scotland, we guarantee you will receive a welcome like no other in Langholm, the ‘Muckle Toon.’

Langholm....explore and discover!

Take a drive along our Prehistoric Trail, visit Gilnockie Tower, find out about the Border Reivers and their connection with the ‘Moon Man,’ Neil Armstrong, research your family history or simply walk the Town Trail and soak up the history of all that has gone before.

And there’s more - being the southern Gateway to the Scottish Borders, Langholm is the perfect centre from which to explore and discover the many hidden gems in this part of undiscovered Scotland – The Samye Ling Tibetan Monastery, the Border Reivers Trail, the Galloway Coastal Trail, the Border Abbeys, Annan Distillery, Hawick’s cashmere outlets and visitor centres or even take a day trip backover the Border to Hadrian’s Wall and the Lake District.
