What travellers are saying
- Artist’s studio open to the public on Saturdays as well as several weekends a year for painting experiencesI’ve followed this amazing colourful artist for a few years now and visited the studio for the first time in 2017. From that point on I followed Julie on insta and Fb then finally this year I returned for a second visit to attend one of her two day weekend painting workshops. What a great experience that was! Her work is exceptional and she is a multi-award winning globally renowned artist. She loves nothing more than visitors popping in for a chat, a cuppa and a “colour hug”. Visit her. You won’t be disappointed. The studio is a little hidden and in Dove Road Langholm. If you come into the town from the south it's the right hand turn just before the petrol station and if you’re coming from the north its the first turn to the left just after the petrol station after the Eskdale Hotel. Drive up the little narrow inclined road and the converted church appears on your left. There is some free parking out the front and you cannot really miss the pink gothic front door. Julie will greet you with smiles and tea or coffee and if you’re lucky Otto the cavapoo will join in. I love this place so much that I have travelled both times from Australia (Yes that's what I said) to visit and I will be back. DON’T miss her studio if your’e into art and in the area!!! And if Julie isn’t round one of her lovely family members will look after you. She wasn’t best artist fo Scotland several times for nothing!! A visit is free. Participation in the weekend courses come with a cost.

- The monument is impressive, dedicated to Johm Malcolm, one of Langholm's local hero brothers. Walk straight up Kirk Wynd right from the town centre or the easy route from the little car park on the Langholm- Newcastleton road across the moor. Either way the views are spectacular, the whole town and Esk Valley below you and the Solway to the south. The monument is a plain, tall obelisk and the focus of the massive annual Common Riding event, last Friday in July. If you have the puff the Kirk Wynd route is rewarding and towards the top passes a pure spring with a drinking cup on a chain!Written 15 November 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We had a wonderful morning at Craig Farm. The weather, although it was cold, was actually quite kind to us,no rain or snow, but the welcome couldn't have been warmer. Briony and James were brilliant hosts. They explained in great detail, every aspect of their business, from the feed, to the bedding, the tack to the exercise,
the stable staff to the owners and of course each and every one of the horses.
Breakfast with James and his mum was a delight, but the highlight without doubt was watching the horses around the gallops.
We learned so much about what it takes to train a racehorse and the highs and lows of the racing world and , we would like you to pass on our gratitude again for a great day.Written 12 March 2016This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We were staying a little way out of Langholm and didn’t know much about the town before we got there. However, it is full of interest and has lots of connections, including Thomas Telford and Neil Armstrong. Another is Hugh MacDiarmid’s memorial. MacDiarmid was not previously known to us but he was in fact a key figure in promoting Scottish nationalism and he was one of the country’s greatest poets of the 20th century. The memorial seems to do him justice – it’s in the form of giant open book decorated with images from his poems, and sits on the rugged moorland just above Langholm, and within sight of a second memorial to a different son of Scotland, John Malcolm, so the two structures lend themselves to an informative exploration of the area.Written 29 October 2020
- Night out to see the 'The Magic Drifters'. Before the show started we were entertained by a singer/comedian and he kept apologising for the cough that he had which affected his singing, but he was still great and managed to get through an hour on stage, he had the audience in the palm of his hand.
When it was time for 'The Magic Drifters' I thought my eyes were deceiving me as they didn't look anything like the advert that was shown on the 'Buccleuch' web page, there was three different age groups on stage but they sounded fantastic and sang for well over an hour. Well done to all concerned at the Buccleuch Centre for putting on this show.Written 3 December 2022
- My two daughters and I were guided by my namesake Adam Armstrong around the border areas where my Armstrong ancestors once held sway. We had a fascinating day seeing where the Armstrong clan lived and died and was able to put much context around what I had previously read. I found Adam to be an excellent guide, who was incredibly enthusiastic and brimming with knowledge of all things Armstrong.
I can thoroughly recommend Adam’s services for those wanting to get a better understanding of the border areas and the reiving families that used to inhabit them.Written 3 September 2023
