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 have been twice now and the staffs have been very friendly each time.

This review is for Moffat

We have been twice now and the staffs have been very friendly each time. The site has 2 very good dog walking areas are available. The site does not have a designated children�s play area but the towns� station park is just a little way down the road the town also has a lot of events during the summer months. The shower blocks were very clean this and all the amenities are cleaned each day. I would highly recommend the site and am planning to return next year.

Although the site is situated on the edge of the town of Moffat, you would not realise it.

This review is for Moffat

Although the site is situated on the edge of the town of Moffat, you would not realise it. Only a couple of minutes walk into Moffat town centre which has a number of attractive shops. There is a traditional bakers situated in the main street and their breads, cakes, pies, morning rolls etc., are all baked on the premises. Scrumptious! On the opposite side of the street is a traditional butchers shop. Well worth a visit for your meat, scotch pies and ingredients for a traditional Scottish breakfast. There is also a street market held up by the garden centre, also in the main street. A lovely old fashioned town. Moffat C&CC site is well maintained by a friendly, helpful team. The roads on site are well maintained. Moffat town council could learn from this as the access road from the A708 is riddled with potholes. The toilet block, washing up area, laundry, chemical toilet disposal are all housed in the same building which is a credit to the club and should be its flagship. Immaculate is the only way to describe these facilities. If any club sites are being upgraded, this block should be the template. Although the site is really close to Moffat town centre, it is more like being in the country. The site is well placed for visiting nearby attractions such as Gray Mares Tail waterfall, and many attractive rides out. The town of Airdrie is only 20 miles away. A very enjoyable stay at a very nice location. My second visit this year,
