The Royal Burgh of Annan has a population of approximately 10,000. The town was made a Burgh of Barony by the Bruces in the 13th century but the charter document was most probably destroyed during the border wars. The charter was re-erected by King James V in 1538.
Each year in July, Annan celebrates the Royal Charter and the boundaries of the Royal Burgh are confirmed when a mounting cavalcade undertakes the Riding of the Marches. The Royal Burgh of Annan is the principal town of Annandale & Eskdale and the third largest in Dumfries & Galloway.
The history of Annan in the past 250 years is one of peaceful agricultural development with some shipbuilding, engineering and sandstone quarrying which is reflected in the district's many fine buildings.includes a procession, sports, field displays and massed pipe bands.
