Great site for couples
Top site for walking
Linger a while on this friendly campsite in southern Scotland.
Moffat will be closed from 18th January 2015 until 13th March 2015 due to site redevelopment works.
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.

Stayed here on many occasions - site of choice when travelling up and down through Scotland. It can be little tight to get into the site (thanks to the local's parking), but once in, the pitches are flat and spacious, with excellent walks for dogs. The staff always seem to be very helpful and friendly; and always advise the best pubs/restaurants in town, as well as routes to the great outdoors. The facilities, although somewhat dated and in need of a refurb, are always spotlessly clean and warm. Having worked here in a former life, I know, and appreciate, how hard the staff work to make this site as attractive as they can - 10/10 for their efforts.

My first venture out as a new C&C member. Arrived without booking due to delays in getting to my original stopover. The site wardens were friendly, welcoming and gave me all the info I required. Was escorted to my pitch, and given an overview of the facilities. The town of Moffat is one of the friendliest communities I've visited, plenty of dog friendly pubs too.
Checked out early to head in to the Highlands and the Warden appeared to check everything was ok. Brilliant service!
We enjoyed the relaxed feel of the site & town so much, we have booked in for a stopover on the way back south.
The team on this site genuinely carenabout the site and members who stay.
