Eskdalemuir

Eskdalemuir is a civil parish and small village in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, with a population of 265. It is sited around 10 miles north-west of Langholm and 10 miles north-east of Lockerbie.The area consists of high wet moorlands chiefly used for sheep grazing and forestry plantation. The main settlement is located near to the White Esk river.Eskdalemuir is probably best known for the Eskdalemuir Observatory and for the Samye Ling Tibetan Buddhist monastery.Upper Eskdale Development GroupIn 2006 the Upper Eskdale Development Group was formed with the aim to reconnect the local community, after the local pub, school, and post office closed, by the development of a Community Hub based in the former school building. They have now transformed the old school into a multi-purpose community building where social activities and community support are delivered. The building houses a shop and café. UEDG members are committed to helping the isolated community at Eskdalemuir become more self-reliant and to reverse the decline that has led to the closure of local services. This in turn is expected to make the area more attractive to investors and families.The UEDG vision is to create a dynamic hub of activity, where community support, social enterprise, businesses and training can be delivered, and cultural activities can flourish, in a place that will inspire residents and visitors alike.
