Eskdalemuir 2 Mile Range is set in the stunning scenery of the Scottish borders, in one of natures most perfectly formed rifle ranges, a long V shaped valley with several intersecting smaller valleys which can create some very interesting wind patterns between the firing point and the ultimate 2 mile target! There are 6 fully covered benches inside and space for up to 15 outside on hard standing, weather permitting. The facilities include free parking, and kitchen with free refreshments.
The range is available for bookings 7 days a week and is the only facility of its type in the UK that is non-military. This makes it an ideal venue for outside club bookings, corporate and professional training or manufacturer product development.
The county of Cumbria consists of six districts (Allerdale, Barrow-in-Furness, Carlisle, Copeland, Eden, and South Lakeland) and in 2008 had a population of just under 500,000 people. Cumbria is one of the most sparsely populated counties in the United Kingdom, with 73.4 people per km2 (190/sq mi).
Cumbria is the third largest county in England by area, and is bounded to the north by the Scottish council areas of Dumfries and Galloway and Scottish Borders, to the west by the Irish Sea, to the south by Lancashire, to the southeast by North Yorkshire, and to the east by County Durham and Northumberland.
Cumbria is predominantly rural and contains the Lake District National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site considered one of England’s finest areas of natural beauty, serving as inspiration for artists, writers, and musicians. A large area of the southeast of the county is within the Yorkshire Dales National Park while the east of the county fringes the North Pennines AONB. Much of Cumbria is mountainous, and it contains every peak in England over 3,000 feet (910 m) above sea level, with Scafell Pike at 3,209 feet (978 m) being the highest point of England. An upland, coastal, and rural area, Cumbria’s history is characterised by invasions, migration, and settlement, as well as battles and skirmishes between the English and the Scots. Notable historic sites in Cumbria include Carlisle Castle, Furness Abbey, Hardknott Roman Fort, Brough Castle and Hadrian’s Wall (also a World Heritage Site).
The Eskdale Farmhouse
The Eskdale Farmhouse is the best place to be for groups. Located on the range, you can shoot, eat, sleep, shoot….. luxury premises provides great stayover.
The Eskdale Hotel
The Eskdale Hotel with his excellent manager „John provides the best service you can have. The hotel also acts as the local pub of the village of Langholm, so a pint in the evening will taste great!
Food on the range
The range is out in the green so there is as good as no possibilty to buy some food for the short lunch breaks. But there is a nice supermarket in Langholm 5 min. by foot from the Eskdale Hotel.
