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.

Location is perfect, few minutes off the M74!! When we arrived we were shown to the pitch by a staff member, who pointed out the facilities. Small friendly shop/ reception, staff helpful, and friendly. The facilities were spotlessly clean and well kept, as was the site in general. We had a few hiccups with TV reception, staff were more than helpful with advice on tuning and position of Ariel, and even offered my husband a loan of they're own satelitte finder when they found out that his was not working properly! The village of Moffat is just a few minutes walk away, with the touristy shops, and the usual butcher, bakers and grocers for replenishing supplies! We would definitely return to this site.

This review is for Moffat

I missed it at first, having found the map a bit confusing. However, once there there was a warm welcome from the staff. I kept staying longer! It was ideal as a base for leaving my camper van and walking or catching buses in all directions. I joined the local walking group on one day and went to the meeting of the local WRI. On Saturday I caught the bus to nearby Beattock for a tea party organised by the WRI. By the end of it I felt I was among friends and some stopped at the bus stop to give me a lift. Plenty of hostelries in Moffat though I was visited Brodies. Indeed, I went there on a daily basis as they were kind enough to let me use their lap top and wii while my iPad was repaired. The site wifi was limited to certain hot spots. The site is big enough for you not to notice a large rally. This is a lovely area and I enjoyed driving out on the A708. There are buses to Glasgow and Edinburgh. Biggar is pleasant and Dawyk Botanic Gardens are splendid. By the end of the week I could not walk into town without meeting someone who knew me!
