The eleventh Langholm Walking Festival is provisionally arranged for the weekend of 25th - 27th May 2012. On each day there is a selection of guided walks which will explore the beautiful countryside around Langholm. Evening entertainment will be available on Friday and Saturday.

The Langholm area is characterised by beautiful river valleys between green, rounded hills. The hills rise to 400-500 metres (1300-1600 feet) - many of them commanding magnificent views. The Festival walks usually range in length from 6.5km/4 miles up to 16km/10 miles.
