Located about two miles from junction 15 on the M74, Moffat is an ideal central location to explore. Only 1 hour from Glasgow heading North or 45 minutes to Carlisle heading South on M74 and 1 ½ hours to Edinburgh along the Scenic A701 (Devils Beef Tub road).
Moffat has walks in every direction to suit all levels of ability. Take a gentle stroll along Annanwater river path or head up to Gallowhill overlooking Moffat, both of these walks can be done straight from Burnbank B&B door and take about 1-1 ½ hours (shorter routes are available).
For something a bit more challenging a short car journey away why not head up to Devils Beef Tub, Grey Mares Tail, St Marys Loch or White Coomb 2694 (highest peak in Moffat Hills area).

Moffat is full of history itself dating back to 17th century when Rachel Whiteford discovered it as a Spa town with three wells located in the hillside. There are also many historic buildings in Moffat from the Town Hall (formerly the Baths Hall) built in 1827, Moffat House Hotel designed by John Adam, built for Earl of Hopetoun and The Black Bull Inn dating back to 1568. The Ram was presented to the town by William Colvin in 1875. Unique is this ram, as the ram’s ears are missing, as they have been since it was first presented. Visit the Moffat Museum to learn more about the history. Further afield we have Drumlanrig Castle, Traquair House and Caerlaverock Castle all less than an hour’s drive away.
