The link above is to a video taken of the Closeburn Church Bell being rung at 3pm on Friday May 8th 2020 as a mark of respect on the 75th anniversary of VE day (1945). This 1606 bell is housed in the belfry of the East gable of Closeburn Church. It was designed by GH (thought to be George Hog) cast in the " Potterraw" Edinburgh.

As part of Scotland’s garden scheme in 2020 Dalswinton House has a virtual tour of its gardens in support of their charity choice, Kirkmahoe Parish Church of Scotland. Dalswinton House is a late 18th-century house sitting on top of a hill surrounded by herbaceous beds and well-established shrubs, including rhododendrons and azaleas, overlooking the loch. There are attractive walks through woods and around the loch. It was here that the first steamboat in Britain made its maiden voyage in 1788 and there is a life-size model beside the water to commemorate this.
