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.

We had a very nice holiday on our second CCC site.
The staff were friendly and helpful and the facilities were good.
There was a good choice of walking and cycling routes in the area on a variety of dedicated paths or small quiet country roads.
It was only about an hour from our home but a lovely area and the weather was good! We will be back!

Friendly, efficient check in. Staff ready to help if required.
Easy access from M74 making this an ideal stop over as well as a good base for a longer stay to explore the area.
Immediate access requires care due to winding lane and parked vehicles, but ok with care. Better Club signage here would help.
Site is well maintained, but pitches and roads at far end could benefit from improved maintenance.
Facilities block is clean and warm but could benefit from upgrading, as it is looking decidedly tired.
Moffat is a pleasant town with many attractions and good independent shops.
We will use the site again.
