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 town of Moffat is a few minutes walk away and the various shops ,cafes, and restarants seem to cater for all. A trip to see the Devils Beef Tub is a worth while experience.

This review is for Moffat

We have been visiting Moffat for many years and during that time the site has undergone a major upgrade. However, what makes the place is the staff. The present staff are marvelous, they make you feel very welcome and keep the place great. This has not always been the case at Moffat where the club's slogan has not always applied!! Unfortunately, during the shower bloc upgrade, someone (he knows who he is) designed the wet rooms but forgot to include a gradient. Consequently, the water does not drain away. It used to form pools in the middle of the corridor and in an attempt to improve matters, the shower heads were moved to the side wall from the back wall. However, this has only moved the pool water from the corridor to the front of the shower cubicles and the water from adjacent shower cubicles pools in the shower floors. You find yourself standing in someone else's dirty water ugh. The only solution is to either start again or introduced shower trays!! One more thing, the Black Bull has re-opened under new owners. Unless you have very deep pockets don't bother; �8.74 for a Guinless and a small red wine!
