Each session will be two hours long and will run from 10-12pm or 1-3pm, for a charge of £3 per session or £5 per day. If children stay for the whole day, just remember to pack them food and drinks!

Have a look at some of the activities we’re offering and find out more, including how to book, below.

Beginning of the Road


by Carys M.

4 March 2019

Settling into Langholm and my role as the Project Assistant for Wild Eskdale has involved a dizzying number of names and a good excuse for a walkabout. I’m not taking for granted the fact that I can get out for a wander as part of the job – not many people can say that, after all – and my treks have led me across rivers, through forests, and over moors as I follow the recommended walks set out in the Langholm Walks booklet (a superb collection!)

Roe-ming the Woods

Roe Deer were one of the first animals I really spent time tracking and spending time with in the wild. Given the right conditions you can get incredibly close without causing disturbance. I had another lovely experience with one yesterday in the plantation near Laverock bird hide on Langholm moor.

Wild Eskdale Project Launched!


by Kevin C.

6 December 2018

On 31st October 2018, a blustery and rainy day at the Malcolm Monument on Langholm Moor I struggled on in the dark at 7:45am putting up gazebos for the launch of this project. Half an hour later and the reinforcements arrived, Wild Eskdale volunteers. In any project like this volunteers are the life blood, those willing to give their time to help. With the additional hands we managed to complete the set up with about half an hour to spare before kick off.
