Johnstonebridge is a small Village surrounded by beautiful countryside. The Village has an excellent Primary School, Doctors’ Surgery and thriving community spirit. This is has led to the development of a new Community Facility, which is close to completion. The Centre is to have a community shop and Post Office, a Hall with stage, and meeting rooms. Outside, there is to be a Play Area, and a multi-use games area, as well as a Tennis Court, and eventually, a Bowling Green. Nearby, various community areas have been acquired, which are to be used as gardens and allotments. Johnstonebridge is around six miles from the lively Town of Lockerbie, where there is the main West Coast railway line and a number of shops. It is also around eight miles from the busy tourist Town of Moffat. Access to the M74 Motorway, North and South, is approximately five minutes driving distance from the Village.
