Annan Riding of the Marches

2nd July 2022

Every effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the event information but we recommend contacting the event organisers before attending.

The Marches or boundaries of Annan have been ridden since the town was created a Royal Burgh more than 600 years ago.

Each year in early July more than one hundred horsemen and horsewomen Ride the Marches to ensure that the landmarks, cairns and other features have not been removed or tampered with.

Annan Riding of the Marches is recognised as being one of the best displays of pipes and drums in Scotland with the closing ceremony attracting in excess of 5,000 people.

Other festivities include a grand parade though the town with decorated floats and bands. In the afternoon a major pipe band competition, sports and entertainment are held on the sports field. Later massed pipe bands and Annan Town Band combine to entertain at the evening closing ceremony on Annan High Street.
