The Royal Burgh of Lochmaben is a small town in the southwest of Scotland, 4 miles west of Lockerbie and 8 miles east of Dumfries.
Lochmaben has a population of around 3000 and is conveniently situated for major road and rail networks. As the name suggests there are three small lochs edging the town, which give great opportunity for enjoying wild life, sailing & fishing.
Lochmaben has a long and interesting recorded history from the time of Robert the Bruce, with a number of notable residents. The town enjoys a good variety of sporting and social activities throughout the year. These include an 18 hole golf course that welcomes visitors, a bowling club, tennis club, sailing club and a number of youth and amateur football teams. Coarse fishing is available on all three lochs.
Lochmaben is also a good centre for walkers, with eight miles of scenic paths around the town. For cyclists, there is a large network of quiet minor roads linking Lochmaben to adjoining towns and villages, and Lochmaben is close to the popular 7stanes mountain bike centres at Ae forest and Mabie forest .
