Town Information

Moffat is a charming small town on the banks of the River Annan. Formerly a centre for wool trade and a spa town, Moffat is a gateway to Scotland; a first stop after crossing the border from England. What visitors find is one of the most attractive towns in the country, offering a very wide choice of food, drink and accommodation. The town attracts many tourists all year round, both as visitors and as walkers in the surrounding hills. Shops include the famous Moffat Toffee Shop. The town also has a recreation park with a boating pond and a memorial to Air Chief Marshal Hugh Dowding. The Star Hotel in Moffat is the narrowest hotel in the world! Families will enjoy the Hammerlands Centre; a combination garden centre, gift shop, restaurant, fish farm with childrens play area and farmyard animals.

The nearby Moffat Hills offer many walking routes, including Gallow Hill, and the town is only a few miles from the Southern Upland Way. North-east of Moffat, is the Grey Mares Tail hanging-valley waterfall and surrounding nature reserve. A 53-mile (85 km) long-distance walking route called Annandale Way passes very close to the town.
