Lockerbie is a historic town in Dumfries and Galloway in southern Scotland situated close to the River Annan 14 miles east of Dumfries and 26 miles north of the Scottish/English Border. The town was founded in the 18th century by the Johnstone’s of Lockerbie; by 1750 it had become a significant town hosting Scotland’s largest lamb fairs. Lockerbie became a burgh in 1863. In medieval times Lockerbie was famous for the ‘Lockerbie Lick’ or a slashed face due to the battles between the Johnstone and Maxwell clans. Today Lockerbie is internationally known for the tragedy of the terrorist attack on 21st December 1988 when a bomb exploded on board a Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet Pan AM flight whilst flying over Lockerbie, killing the 243 passengers and 11 villagers. The Dryfesdale Lodge Visitor Centre Trust has exhibition rooms with a memorial to the victims of the 1988 tragedy and a tribute to the strength of the community, there are also displays of pre-historic origins and heritage. Surrounded by scenic countryside Lockerbie is a popular tourist resort with the railway station close to the town centre and several hotels and holiday accommodation to choose from, there is busy high street with many shops and plenty places to eat. Architecturally interesting buildings include the Town Hall, built in 1880 from a distinctive red-stone in Scottish Baronial style with an impressive clock-tower. The ruins of the 14-16th century Lochmaben Castle, once the seat of Robert the Bruce, lie on Castle Lock and the remains of a WW2 Ukrainian POW camp lie just outside town next to the chapel built by the men. Lockerbie holds and annual Jazz festival each October, other attractions include the ice-rink used to host curling events. There is an 18-hole golf course and the Farm Buggy Trails have quad-biking through the hills and forests, clay-pigeon shooting and land-rover safaris, salmon, sea-trout and brown trout fishing is available in the River Annan.
