The town hosts a superb ramblers’ walking festival annually in early October .

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.
