Craig snowdrops have evolved over the last 30 or so years. Round the house and policies, a large variety have been planted with a varied flowering season stretching from the start of January until April and peaking mid-February. Large drifts of Leucojum vernum (Winter Snowflake) have started to naturalise here and along the riverbank a variety of snowdrops swept down by the river have naturalised in the adjacent woodland, known as the Snowdrop Walk.
Craig is three miles from Langholm on the B709 towards Eskdalemuir. The Village Hall is at Bentpath, one mile further towards Eskdalemuir.

Each walk takes about twenty minutes. Wellies are essential. Wheelchair access down by the river is not possible but easier around the house.
Teas will be available in the nearby Bentpath Village Hall from 2:00pm - 4:00pm.
