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.

Arrived at the site and was made most welcome by the staff.

This review is for Moffat

Arrived at the site and was made most welcome by the staff. Moffat is a typical borders town with a good Main Street containing an excellent variety of shops. A cafe off the High St. worth a visit is a retro decorated cafe called the Milk Shake Bar. I'm in my fifties and was delighted to see all the old Coke signs etc. the coffee is delicious as are the scones/cakes. They also serve sandwiches and hot meals. The Star Hotel is a superb choice for evening meals. They have a wide choice including venison pie. I have always found the staff very friendly and willing to please. The Black Bull Bar is also a place to visit for for drinks. The bar staff could open a training establishment for aspiring bartenders. They are the perfect hosts. The surrounding countryside is a haven for walkers and mountain bikers. The river running along the edge of town offers a 10k walk or mountain bike ride. (Starts across the road from the boating pond). The famous Grey Mare's Tail is a short drive from the site and is fairly spectacular. Not a place to take young children on their first walk but you don't need to be a mountaineer either. There is a good path to a lochan where you can decide to return by your original route or take another route which takes you further onto the hill giving you a great circuitous route eventually returning to the Gray Mare's Tale path. Doing this gets you onto an easy summit over 800m. There are many more walks for easier walking. Some direct from the site. I was told by the site staff that the site will be closing for 2 months in the near future to enable the toilet block to be fully refurbished. The existing block is old but I have never had a problem with it. Plenty of hot water,good showers and the block is heated in winter

An excellent 'peace & quiet' campsite, close to Moffat Town centre, but rural enough for you...

This review is for Moffat

An excellent 'peace & quiet' campsite, close to Moffat Town centre, but rural enough for you to think you were 'out in the country'. My first experience of the C&CC! Lovely, helpful staff, whilst the campsite was clean & tidy, with a good toilet block. My puppy and I will definitely be trying others, but we will certainly be going back to Moffat!
