West Linton Whipman

Whipman is the old Scots word for a carter or carrier, and the story of the Linton play began in 1803 when the Whipman Benevolent Society, providing mutual aid to its members, held their annual meeting.

The West Linton Whipman will be taking place from 3rd to 11th June 2016 with Installation Friday on the 5th June

The best viewpoints will be from anywhere in the village centre (Station Road & Main Street) or at the Ford (crossing point) on the Lower Green. You can also take the A702 towards Dolphinton then turn right for approximately 2 miles to Garvald. Riders will ride out at 10.00am and will be back at 3.30pm.
