Moffat is not only surrounded by beautiful rolling hills. There are an abundance of rivers, lochs and reservoirs that are perfect for exploring in kayak, canoe and paddleboard
St Mary's Loch and Loch of the Lowes
A great place for stand up paddleboarding and open-top canoeing. On a calm day, this is an easy paddle. The weather and the wind can pick up quickly on both lochs, so check weather conditions in advance.
A scenic drive from Moffat, the Tallah reservoir is suitable to canoes and stand up paddleboards. As with all reservoirs, please check weather conditions and access restrictions.
The Evan Water
A 5 minute drive from Moffat, the Evan water is a pleasant river that runs past Beattock. Suitable for kayaks, full information can be found in the Scottish Rivers Guidebook.
The Gameshope Burn
A steep and rocky descent. This should only be attempted by experienced kayakers with the correct equipment. Full information can be found in the Scottish Rivers Guidebook
