Moffat and the surrounding Moffat hills present a haven for walkers of all abilities. The clean Scottish air, stunning scenery and timeless beauty are truly awe inspiring. Whether for a day’s hiking or a short stroll in unspoilt countryside, Moffat is the perfect place to experience a truly memorable walking holiday.
There is a comprehensive range of walks signed around the town itself and many more in the rolling hills around Moffat – including two nearby Corbetts. The area is on the scenic Southern Upland Way and is the most northerly point on The Annandale Way – the long distance walk from the Devil’s Beef Tub to the Solway Firth at Annan which opened in 2009. If you’re in town for a while, why not join in one of the Better4Walking walks on a Wednesday morning?
Moffat, along with other ‘Walkers are Welcome’ towns was featured in an article in The Great Outdoors magazine in November 2011.
Comfortable walker-friendly accommodation, ranging from camping sites to top class hotels, is available to suit all budgets. Moffat boasts a wide range of great places to eat with lots of award-winning cuisine. It’s no surprise that Moffat is known as the jewel of Southern Scotland – if you haven’t yet visited for a walking holiday, come soon! You won’t be disappointed.
