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.

Moffat site is an excellent base for my husband and I to be.

This review is for Moffat

Moffat site is an excellent base for my husband and I to be. Handy for the town and shops and also good for walking our dog! Everywhere is accessible for my husbands mobility scooter which is an added bonus! Only down side this visit was the state of the access road to the site, giant potholes, very awkward if towing a caravan! Also felt that the town has gone downhill rather a lot in the last year. Lots of shops closed down and generally place is very run down in comparison to what it used to be. Such a shame as it has always been quite tourist attraction with the beautiful Station Park and its lake, set in a beautiful location. Hopefully things will improve during the rest of 2017! ccc site is faultless!

Visited moffat site in Feb 17 .Site was spotless as usual . Only downside is the approach road to the site which although is narrow it's is full of very large potholes .We have visited several times over the last two yes and it's never been a problem but on this occasion it was slot worse than it's been previously. Apart from that it's a fantastic site

Normally by-pass this site when heading further north from Carlisle.

This review is for Moffat

Normally by-pass this site when heading further north from Carlisle. Under an hours drive away from home so booked in for a short break. Well laid out flat field. As new facilities. All clean and tidy. Friendly, helpful wardens (as expected). Town is small but perfectly formed. Was quiet in February; likely busy in season with coach stop offs and car tourists. A pleasant place to wander round and a good base to access the nearby Border towns and hills. More the Howgills than the Lakes or Highlands but now planning a return to walk the tops.

The site is great as a base from where you can undertake many circular walks.

The site is great as a base from where you can undertake many circular walks. One last moan, I went to use the washing machine only to discover it was full of mop heads? No wander there was clanking sounds when passing earlier!
