This Border Reiver clan was settled in Liddesdale by 1376 and later extended their power and influence to Annandale. Their warlike chiefs and their supporters waged war on both sides of the Border, notorious for cattle thieving. Many were hunted down and ended swinging from the gallows. Astronaut Neil Armstrong was granted the key to the town of Langholm during his visit to his ancestral land. The famous photo of him walking on the moon proudly adorns the provost's office.
