Eskdalemuir

(3.8/5 based on 110+ reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: historic sites
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. Settlement is generally located near to, or by one of the many tributaries of the Black Esk and White Esk rivers.Eskdalemuir is best known for the nearby Eskdalemuir weather station and for the Samye Ling Tibetan Buddhist monastery.In 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, which is based in the former school building. They are striving to transform the old school into a multi-purpose community building where social activities and community support can be delivered. The building will house a shop and café and spaces where social enterprise businesses can start up and training be delivered. UEDG members are committed to helping the isolated community at Eskdalemuir become more self-reliant and reverse the decline that has led to the closure of the local school, pub and post office. This in turn is expected to make the area more attractive to investors and families.Eskdalemuir is rich in archaeological remains, including two neolithic stone circles, the Loupin Stanes and the Girdle Stanes, and bank barrow, Castle O'er, a possible ritual centre for the Selgovae, Raeburnfoot, a Roman fort and later dark age fortifications and settlements.
