Coast 2 Coast cyclists stay in the Muckle

 
 
 

By Sharon Tolson

A group of cycling friends tackled the new Coast to Coast route from Stranraer to Eyemouth this week breaking this leg of their journey overnight at the Eskdale Hotel.

Langholm is firmly on the route and a popular stop off point before heading into the Scottish Borders and beyond to Eyemouth.

The group from the Edinburgh area claimed Langholm to be the “friendliest place they had been to, so far”.
