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.

I love this site as it is the first stop on the way to Scotland and the last before leaving.

This review is for Moffat

I love this site as it is the first stop on the way to Scotland and the last before leaving. The Loos are spotless and despite the site being extremely busy there was never a queue. The town is only a few minutes walk and it has the most fabulous chippy (in the lane next to the RBS bank. Go there you will not be disappointed!. Now for the important bit, The staff. They are a really happy bunch and clearly love what they do. I was silly enough to forget my water tank filler cap after filling up and didn't notice until I was in the Cannock chase site. The manager rang Moffat for me and managed to locate it .. It is now being posted to me . So thanks to all the staff and especially the lady who found my cap . I cannot recommend this site enough and will difinately be making a return visit on my next foray to the highlands

This review is for Moffat

New to caravanning but thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at the Moffat site. Very friendly welcome. Only criticism, didnt like toilets being part of shower block. Eat at Hartfell House (Limetree Restaurant) - strongly recommend - 10 mins. walk from site. Would not recommend Buccleugh Hotel - very basic carvery in a very basic and tired hotel!! Moffat is lovely with lots to look at. Climbed Mare's Tail - waterfall is beautiful. Looking forward to return visit.

This review is for Moffat

We stopped here for 2 nights on our way back down South, it's in a great location, close to Moffat, (the signposts to the site could do with being a little bigger though!) the drive to Peebles was beautiful, our children loved the sweet shop in Moffat, think this became the highlight of their holiday! The site is perfect for couples, it's extremely quiet (or was when we were there, nothing wrong with that, maybe just less suitable for families?) The toilets/showers were excellent, lovely hot water, spotlessly clean & a great size.
