The local area guide to living in Lochmaben

A quaint, close-knit Scottish village with a long history dating back to Robert the Bruce, Lochmaben is positioned in the heart of rural Dumfries and Galloway. Bordered by 3 lochs which have earned it its name, Lochmaben is located 4 miles to the west of Lockerbie and 8 miles to the east of Dumfries. This puts residents in a good position to take advantage of nearby road and rail links to destinations throughout Scotland. Notable sights within Lochmaben include the ruins of a castle dating back to 1300, along with imposing statues of Robert the Bruce and historian Reverend William Graham.

Lochmaben residents enjoy an extensive collection of recreational opportunities on their doorsteps, notably the 18-hole golf course and 3 lochs surrounding the village. Kirk Loch, Castle Loch, and Mill Loch provide natural scenery, as well as sailing, fishing, and walking opportunities. When the lochs freeze over in winter, curling is also a popular pastime. In addition to water sports and golfing, the 53-mile Annandale Way route passes through Lochmaben.

Information about the local residents

With a history dating back 900 years, Lochmaben has had its ups and downs over the centuries. It prospered as an important centre for the textiles industry in the 1800s, before undergoing a period of decline shortly after. At the moment, the village is on the upswing, with new housing planned and the agriculture and tourism industries taking off.

Arla Foods, a dairy processing plant, is one major employer in the area and many residents commute to its factory. Some also commute to Dumfries for retail and business opportunities, while others make the longer commute into Glasgow. There are roughly 3000 residents who call Lochmaben home, according to the latest Census figures.

Nearby schools

There is a highly regarded nursery and primary school located within the village. At the most recent student roll, Lochmaben Primary School included 254 primary students and 28 nursery students. Originally founded in 1872, the school was moved to a new, open-plan building in 1983. More recently an extension has been added to accommodate the nursery students, and the school enjoys strong ties to the community and Parent Council.

At the secondary level, students may choose to attend Lockerbie Academy or Dumfries High School. Over a third of students at both schools gained, at least, five Highers according to the latest League Tables, and 50% gained, at least, three Highers at Lockerbie Academy.

Local shops

Lochmaben may be small in size, but it boasts an enviable range of shops, cafés and recreation facilities. Most of these can be found positioned along the historic High Street, which runs from the Parish Church at one end to the Town Hall at the other. Due to its rural location, some of the local shops are geared towards outdoor activities including Lochmaben Shooting Supplies Ltd and Rostrum Sportswear. Two convenience shops, a pet supply store, a bakery, and a florist shop round out the High Street options, while Tickety Boo Jam provides the chance to pick up locally produced preserves and confectionery.

There’s a Tesco Superstore in nearby Lockerbie providing all household goods, and a wide range of big-name shops can be found in Dumfries. These include Debenhams, Currys PC World and the Loreburne Shopping Centre, all just a 10-minute drive from central Lochmaben.
