Langholm is a remote town in Dumfries and Galloway in southern Scotland situated on the River Esk, 30 miles east of Dumfries on the road north into the Borders. Known as the ‘Muckle Toon’, Langholm received its burgh status in 1621.The ‘new’ Langholm town was founded and laid out as a grid-plan settlement by the Duke of Buccleuch in 1778 and it grew during the 19th century as a wool centre with several mills in production. Scottish poet Hugh MacDiarmid (1872-1978) was born in Langholm and there is a MacDiarmid trail out to the MacDiarmid Memorial (a large metal book) on the north-side of Whita Hill. The busy town is a popular tourist destination with shops, hotels, holiday accommodation, pubs and a variety of place to eat. Interesting features include the ruins of the 16th century Langholm Castle and the17th century Mercat Cross. The Town Hall dates from c1811 and the Library c1875. The Clan Armstong Trust Museum has exhibits and displays of ancient armour and heraldry; astronaut Neil Armstong was made a freeman of the burgh in 1972. Salmon fishing is available in the River Esk, there is music and arts festival, a food festival and the Langholm Walks including, prehistoric, moorland and way-marked walking trails, driving tours operate to explore the attractions of Langholm and neighbouring Selkirk.
