Moffat is a small historical town in Dumfries and Galloway in southern Scotland situated 19 miles north-east of Dumfries on the River Annan. Moffat lies on the famous long distance Southern Upland Way and is one of the first stops after crossing the border from England known as ‘a gateway to Scotland.’ The town was Scotland’s first Spa resort from the 1650’s until 1921 with a sulphurous mineral spring found nearby which was thought to have health-giving qualities. There is an area to the north of town known as the ‘Devil’s Beef Tub’ this is where sheep and cattle rustlers would hide the stolen animals before moving them on. Moffat is a popular holiday resort surrounded by the Moffat hills and scenic countryside it has a wide tree-lined High Street with shops, restaurants, pubs and many hotels in the centre of town, one of the oldest being the Black Bull Inn built in 1683. Attractions include the Moffat museum with history from Roman occupation to present day and the Moffat woollen mill. The Grey Mare’s Tail Nature Reserve with a 60m waterfall plunging into the Moffat Water Valley from the waters of Loch Skene, the Hammerlands Outdoor Activity Centre with garden centre, fish farm, shop, café and restaurant and the 18-hole Moffat golf club which was established in 1884.
