Muckle Toon Adventure Festival

This is the third year for this activity festival based in the Borders town of Langholm. There’s trail running and mountain biking in the Southern Uplands around the town, road racing on the quiet B roads, and a bit of geocaching to keep the kids occupied. Camp for the weekend, hang out at the Basecamp with Andy Kirkpatrick and enjoy the food and drink from local suppliers. See the website for more details.
