A former 19th Century spa town and old coaching stop, Moffat is a popular walking holiday base in South West Scotland, close to the great 212 mile long Southern Upland Way. The town hosts a superb ramblers’ walking festival annually in early October . A choice of gentle strolls and strenuous hikes branch out from Moffat into the surrounding upland hills, with favourites including ‘The Devil’s Beef Tub’ following a stretch of the Annadale Way. You’ll also find a wealth of outdoor activities in the area from cycling trails to golf.
Moffat’s close proximity, just 3 minutes, from the M74 combined with its excellent choice of self-catering and B&B accommodation, traditional inns and craft shops make it a popular scenic stopover en-route south or north.
