Samye Ling Tibetan Centre
Samye Ling Tibetan Centre information
The Samye Ling Tibetan Centre is the first Tibetan Buddhist monastery built in the West (1968). The colourful prayer flags and the red and gold of the temple itself are a striking contrast to the stark grey and green landscape. You can visit the centre during the day (donation suggested, cafe on site), or stay overnight in simple accommodation which includes full vegetarian board. There are also meditation courses and weekend workshops available. Reserve accommodation online, not by phone.
Bus 112 from Langholm/Lockerbie stops at the centre five times a day Monday to Saturday.
