Scottish Snapshots: Moffat

Scottish Snapshots is a series of short posts about places I visited in 2013 but didn’t write about at the time

Moffat is a lovely little town in Dumfries and Galloway. John and I visited for a weekend a couple of years ago; this time (May 2013) we were meeting up with our friends, Val and Kenn from Yorkshire. We made an excellent choice of accommodation: I can’t praise McAdam House Holiday Apartments more highly – I wanted to move in! Our only complaint was that we couldn’t make use of the roof terrace because of the weather, but I guess the owners can’t be held responsible for that.

There are some easy walks around Moffat itself, but it’s also handy for the Grey Mare’s Tail and St Mary’s Loch where there is a good pub, Tibbie Shiel’s, for a hearty lunch to fortify you. Have a giggle at their weather report!

On our previous visit, we also walked at the Devil’s Beef Tub and there are many other walks to try. Add to that a selection of good restaurants and we have every reason to go back.
