Moffat Community Nature Reserve

Visit Moffat Community Nature Reserve and discover the wonderful wildlife that has made its home in this former quarry.

There’s something to see whatever time of year you visit. Look for the richly coloured insects, dragonflies, butterflies and bumblebees in the wildflower meadow in spring and early summer, the wading birds, Curlew, Snipe and Lapwing in winter or the Little Grebe, Geese and Mute Swans feeding on the lochan all year round.

There are lots of opportunities to volunteer throughout the year and a great range of events such as bat walks and building bug hotels. Find out what’s going on from the Moffat Community Nature Reserve website or from their Facebook page.

The reserve is open throughout the week from 8.00am to 8.00pm. Entry is free.

You can find the reserve by following the brown signs for the Community Nature Reserve from the A701 between Moffat and the M74.
