Moffat

Moffat Town lies just beneath the striking natural grandeur of the Devil’s Beef Tub and is the home of the world famous Moffat Toffee.

Nestling in the Moffat hills, a jewel in the crown of southern Scotland, the town is easy to find. Situated a mile from the main A74M from Carlisle to Glasgow, this is a great stopping off point as well as a perfect place to stay. Visitors can enjoy the scenic trail to Edinburgh and the Borders and sample the other attractions in Dumfriesshire

In local historian Emillio Dicerbo’s fantastic book “Memories of Moffat” we read “In the seventeenth century, Moffat’s transformation from a poor ‘Brigadoon’ – like village to the beginning of a popular Spa town occurred”.

The sulphurous waters of Moffat Spa were believed to have healing properties and as more and more people flocked to Moffat, the “healing waters” were piped from the well to the “Baths Hall”  (now the Town Hall). The town began to grow and more accommodation was required to cater for the thousands of annual visitors.

Moffat for walkers

This is the perfect place for walkers. On the scenic Southern Upland Way and the most northerly point on the Annandale Way, you’ll find Moffat offers a stunning landscape for your walking holiday and a warm and friendly place to rest awhile. The town is also a perfect base for visiting the Grey Mare’s Tail – a spectacular 60 metre waterfall which flows from Loch Skeen. The walk to Loch Skeen via the Grey Mares Tail  has been listed as one of the UKs finest half day walks and you also have the possibility of seeing a herd of mountain goats. The walk to Loch Skeen takes about 2 – 2.5 hours.

For the more adventurous walker, one of Scotland`s Corbetts, White Coomb can be climbed from Loch Skeen while two other Corbetts, Hart Fell and Broad Law are nearby.
