Linger a while on this friendly campsite in southern Scotland.

Moffat is our Club campsite in the Scottish lowlands. It’s an ideal stopping off point for journeys through Scotland. This pretty Victorian Spa town is just three minutes off the M74. But Moffat is much more than just a pit stop, its idyllic location more than warrants a longer stay.

The 180-pitch Moffat campsite boasts a fine setting in a wide valley surrounded by magnificent scenery. The well laid out site has a good range of well-placed facilities catering for all campers needs.

If you choose to linger a little longer in the area, the town of Moffat is a great place to start your exploration. Just a five minute walk from the campsite, the town boasts one of the broadest high streets in Scotland. Here you'll find the fountain topped by the statue of Colvin Ram, the famous Moffat Toffee Shop and the Star Hotel which appears in the Guinness Book of Records as the narrowest hotel in the world. Moffat also offers a variety of shopping including a weekly market on Fridays and a monthly producers market.

Nearby Station Park offers a  variety of attractions including a boating lake and gardens. Next to the campsite the Hammerlands Centre has a garden centre, cafe and fishery. 

The town holds an annual walking festival in October and from the campsite you can access some of the finest hilwalking in the south of Scotland. Also close by is the Grey Mares Tail, a magnificent waterfalldropping 200ft from Loch Skene. 

There are also a number of historic houses and castles in the area. Drumlanrig Castle near Thornhill - Scotland’s oldest inhabited house - contains artwork by Rembrandt and Da Vinci and has wonderful landscaped gardens and woods. Medieval  Caerlaverock Castle is located close to nearby  Dumfries.

The site is great as a base from where you can undertake many circular walks.

The site is great as a base from where you can undertake many circular walks. One last moan, I went to use the washing machine only to discover it was full of mop heads? No wander there was clanking sounds when passing earlier!

We love staying at Moffat in the winter there are so many walks of different levels, shops to vist; the restaurants and pubs all make for a perfect weekend but, for an all year round site the washing up area should be indoors.

We spent 4 nights over the Christmas holiday and enjoyed meeting other people at a Christmas Eve gathering. There were lovely views of hills and a nice local park. There were also waterside walks along the River Annan. We got 10% off at The Stag Pub/Restaurant and had our Christmas Day meal at Bombay Cuisine which was excellent. Would definitely recommend Moffat as a Christmas break I only wish we could have stayed for Hogmanay!
