CAFÉ

Drop in for a morning coffee or a cup of tea in our light, airy, spacious café, and perhaps, weather permitting, take advantage of a table on the veranda where you can enjoy watching fly fishing & bait fishing at the two fishing lochans.

You might well find that you’re tempted to stop for a spot of lunch with friends and family before taking a stroll around the garden centre – we think you’ll love our homemade fayre, soup of the day, dish of the day, and tray bakes.

The little ones are catered for with their own menu, and ice lollies and soft drinks are always available!

As with the whole project at The Green Frog, we will endeavour to adapt and change, and “go with the flow” in an attempt to refine what we offer to cater as best we can for what our customers are looking for we always try to source locally – we will listen and learn and are open to constructive criticism and advice – so feel free to offer it!

FISHING AT MOFFAT

We are a long standing clear water, spring fed lochan. We treasure our fish, which we stock from local sources and the weights range from 3lb upwards. we stock a percentage of Blue and Rainbow but we also have Browns, Brookes and Tigers. We pride ourselves on a beautiful , quality surrounding where quality not quantity of fish can be caught. Our fishery manager is usually on hand to help with any anglers questions or queries.

Our waters are clear, and run all year round, but with this advantage of clear water, our maintenance for keeping it clear of weed is continual. So every Monday and Tuesday are designated cutting days. We only cut sections making it fishable during maintenance, but this can also encourage a feeding pattern in our fish which helps any angler fishing those days.

We do have a professional angler, Sue McNiven who can come and help with expert tuition on the water and also our fishery manager can help with any problems.

Whether you are a beginner or an expert the two well stocked lochans at the Green Frog in Moffat offer an easily accessible location to enjoy fishing.

Thomas Carlyle’s Birthplace

Childhood home of one of Britain’s most influential thinkers

Thomas Carlyle’s Birthplace is now closed until 2021.

 

Little did anyone know that the boy born here in 1795 would go on to become one of the most prolific writers and social commentators of the 19th century.
The unassuming exterior of this wee house in Ecclefechan, near Lockerbie, belies its significance in Scottish history. The house was constructed by Thomas Carlyle’s father and uncle – both local stonemasons – and is a fine example of Scottish 18th-century vernacular architecture.
When Thomas Carlyle was 13, he left Ecclefechan and walked 84 miles to Edinburgh, to attend university.
The Arched House has remained virtually untouched since 1881, when it first opened to the public with the Carlyle House Memorial Trust, started by Carlyle’s niece soon after his death.

There are 23 golf clubs that are members of the South of Scotland Golfers Association. Courses range from wee 9 hole courses in the picturesque Galloway hills to magnificent 18 hole links round the extensive coastline. Green fees range from as little as little as £10 in winter up to £60 for Southerness. Great value is to be had on courses to suit all tastes and abilities.

Gilnockie Tower

The Esk Valley Clan Armstrong Reiver Centre

The Clan Armstrong Ancestral Home

History, Mystery and Discovery while exploring the far-reaching lands of the Anglo-Scottish Border Reivers, join us for an enthralling 500 years of Clan Armstrong History at Gilnockie Tower Reiver Centre.

Gilnockie Tower is a stunning example of a Scottish Pele tower. Built some 500 years ago, it was home to Johnnie Armstrong, a notorious border reiver. In 1530 this powerful Laird was hanged by a young Scottish king, James V, his story romanticised by Walter Scott.

Gilnockie Tower has five floors, including a vaulted chamber, banqueting hall and a 72 step spiral staircase. The entrance stone into the vaulted chamber is thought to be two thousand years old. Once a roofless ruin, the building has been completely refurbished and is open as a clan and visitor attraction. The Clan Armstrong Centre houses reiving artefacts and the world’s largest collection of Armstrong archives.
For the moment the Johnnie Armstrong of Gilnockie Cafe is serving hot drinks only.

 Many times recognised by historians, students and visitors alike as: the Gilnockie Tower; Armstrong’s Tower; Hollows Tower; or Holehouse Tower and believed to be from the period circa 1490-1520 as a rubble built, carved stone, Medieval Period Scots Tower House.

Broom Fisheries

Welcome to Broom Fisheries, home to Scotland’s leading coarse fishing lakes and waters, nestled away in a quiet, picturesque corner of South West Scotland.

You’ll find us at Newbie, two miles from the nearby market town of Annan in beautiful Dumfries & Galloway, and less than 25 miles from Carlisle.

Fishing at Broom

Coarse fishing is a growing sporting activity in Scotland, and we have 9 fully stocked lakes here at Broom Fisheries, including a purpose built canal, that make us famous for the quality and variety of course fishing that we offer, attracting keen anglers for leisure and competition fishing alike.

We are hoping that by providing a range of excellent facilities to visitors and tourists, Broom Fisheries will continue to build on the hard work of Scotland’s coarse fishing community and increase interest in coarse angling across Scotland and the rest of the UK.

Situated within easy access of the M6 and M74, Broom Fisheries’ peaceful and natural environment attracts regular anglers from all over the country.

Welcome to Annandale Distillery and Visitor Centre

Established in 1836, we’re one of Scotland’s oldest operating distilleries.

Located close to the Scotland-England border, we’re also the first (and last) distillery in Scotland.

Whilst in the ownership of the famous Johnnie Walker, Annandale Distillery closed in 1918, seemingly forever.

Not so!

Rescued by David Thomson & Teresa Church in 2007, this once derelict distillery sprang back into life on November 3rd, 2014
Three years later, on Wednesday November 15th, 2017, we filled the first ‘new era’ bottle of Annandale Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

It’s a beautiful place! Come and visit us, take a tour, sip our stunning peated and unpeated whiskies and taste our delicious food. We promise you a warm Scottish welcome.
Whisky by the nip, the bottle or the barrel.

Welcome to Ellisland Museum and Farm. From 1788-1791, Ellisland Farm was the rural home of National Bard Robert Burns. He built the house for his family. Its fabulous location by the river Nith inspired him to write some of his most famous poems.

Today visitors can explore Burns’ farmhouse; the kitchen where meals were shared, his spence where genius was ignited. Then discover more about his life, work, and the setting that brought us Tam o’ Shanter, Banks O’ Doon and Auld Lang Syne.

Dr Henry Duncan(1774 – 1846), led to the founding of a great banking movement.
If one were looking for a man out of Scotland’s past to serve as an object lesson for her present he wouldn’t be Burns, or even Robert Bruce. He would be someone like Henry Duncan … who typifies the Scots in one of his greatest epochs. (more…)

WELCOME TO THE BUCCLEUCH – Hotel & Restaurant

The Buccleuch nestles in a picturesque valley surrounded by the rolling Moffat Hills. The small town of Moffat is perfectly and conveniently situated just 2 miles from the M74, the primary route between Scotland and England. The area surrounding Moffat offers a unique undulating landscape with many hills and valleys, rivers and Lochs. This truly is the ideal base to stay a few days and explore this beautiful, gentle and almost undiscovered part of Scotland.

The Buccleuch is well renowned for its excellent food brought to you in the aptly named ‘Beef Tub Comfort Grill’. We are particularly proud of the quality and pedigree of our raw product. Wherever possible this product is sourced nearby provided it meets our quality criteria.

The hotel boasts a proud ancestry dating from 1760 which is reflected in its architecture and every effort has been made to retain some of the olde world charm. Of particular note, installed during a recent refurbishment, are the wall to wall murals depicting the hotel as it was in the early 1900’s along with decoupage on the tables incorporating hundreds of images and title deeds dating right back to 1772!

As a privately run hotel in Moffat, Dumfries & Galloway, we at the Buccleuch take the greatest care and attention to ensure that your accommodation in Moffat is relaxing and comfortable.
