Langholm Stories

Langholm, is the historical home of the Armstrongs, Elliots, Hugh McDiarmid and Thomas Telford among others. Set in the heart of the former debatable lands on the Scottish Borders, it is a beautiful spot. A uniquely privileged, although isolated Toon; it contains a large remnant of interesting and interrelated Lallans Scots speakers, ever happy to discuss their historical connections and relationships. I've attempted to capture some of this in this short (58 min) documentary set around the main event of the year: The Langholm Common Riding.
