About Moffat & Beattock
Once a well-known spa town, one of only two in Scotland, Moffat still retains the aura of its leisured past.
The former baths and pump room now house the town hall. In this peaceful ambience, there are plenty of walks, from the Southern Uplands Way for dedicated walkers to guided hill walks, or just pleasant strolls for the less ambitious.
In addition to the natural beauty of the area and town, of interest to visitors are the Moffat Museum which traces the history of the area through artifacts and video and the Moffat Woollen Mill where you can trace your Scottish Clan History and visit a working weaving exhibition.
The statue of the ram above the fountain in Moffat testifies to the importance of wool to the local economy. There are several mill shops in the area, and the high point of each year is the Installation of the Moffat Shepherd and Lass followed by the Shepherds’ Ball.
North-east up Moffat Water on the A708 is Scotland’s highest waterfall, Grey Mares Tail, where there is a walk for experienced hill walkers, and the famous ’Tibbie Shiels Inn’ at the foot of St Mary’s Loch. North-west up the A701 is the Devils Beef Tub, a huge natural depression in wild hills where border thieves (’reivers’) used to hide their stolen cattle.
Ideal for the Lowther Hills and The Southern Upland Way passes here. Nearby is a waterfall on the Annan river. Beattock summit is the highest point at 315m (1033ft) on the railway to the Clyde valley and was a notable uphill pull in the days of steam trains.
