Explore Langholm and Eskdale Guide Launched for Easter

 
 
 

Easter weekend saw the launch of a new guide to Langholm and Eskdale in the form of a small booklet.

‘Explore Langholm and Eskdale’ provides a visitor guide to the area and covers Canonbie, Ewes, Westerkirk and Eskdalemuir as well as Langholm.

The guide is intended to provide visitors with information in the form of a taster, rather than go into great detail about each item.  It also includes links to websites for various places in the area.

Developing tourism in the area is a key objective of the Langholm Community Plan. The creation of a guide hopes to support that aim.

A decision was taken to widen the guide out to cover the whole of Eskdale as there is so much to see across the whole area with something for everyone.

The project was funded by the Scottish Government’s Ideas into Action fund for which, the Langholm Alliance received a grant. The production of the guides cost just under £5000 and uses photos by local photographers whose images greatly enhance and illustrate the text. The design was done by a Langholm based designer while the printing was done by a Dumfries based print company.

The guide is being distributed widely around the area and if any bed and breakfast hosts, or other accommodation providers would like to have some copies for their accommodation, they can contact the Welcome to Langholm shop in the high street where they are being stored. Everyone is invited to pick up a copy there or in the various shops around town.

It is hoped that the guides will enhance people’s stay in the area and encourage visitors to spend more time and to stay longer in Langholm and Eskdale.

It is recognised that guides such as this go out of date very quickly and it is hoped that an update can be produced in the future.
