The Langholm Walks Project


The Langholm Walks Group have waymarked 14 walks in and around the town of Langholm in South West Scotland. The town of Langholm is in Dumfries and Galloway, situated 20 miles north of Carlisle on the western edge of the Border Hills. The first stage of the project was opened on 22nd August 2000 by Magnus Magnusson, chairman of The Paths for All Partnership. The second stage is now complete and there are 14 walks in all with 100 miles of waymarked walks.

There is a guide to our walks in the format of a plastic folder containing details of our 14 way marked walks. Each walk will have an A4 OS map with details of the walk on the other side. This pack can be obtained by post from The Langholm Walks Group, Ardlui, 63 Henry Street, Langholm, DG13 0ES. The cost will be £5 plus £1.50 for postage and packing for the set of walks. Langholm Walks Group can be contacted by tel; 013873 80715 or by email at


Copies of this new publication are also be available in local shops and hotels and the Welcome to Langholm Hub in the market Place.

The Langholm Walks offer a varied selection of woodland and hilltop routes. Ranging from 2.5 to 10 miles in length and from gentle strolls to rough open land, there is something to please most recreational walkers here. To see the 14 routes in more detail, you can visit the Walks page on this website.
