Being based in this delightful wool town, staying at the Camping and Caravanning Club's Moffat site offers a wonderful place from which to explore the Scottish Lowlands and the home town of both William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. In addition to this good dose of history, the nearby Dawyck Botanic Gardens lets you explore one of the Royal Botanic Gardens of Scotland while more rugged and windswept encounters with nature are easy to find, with a 200ft waterfall hidden within Grey Mare's Tail Nature Reserve a particular highlight.
With 180 pitches on offer, caravanners can choose from either grass or hardstanding pitches with or without electric hook-ups and motorhomes, tents and trailers are also welcome. On-site amenities offer everything you'd expect, including a shower block with toilets and washbasins as well as washing machines and dishwashing provisions. Wi-Fi is provided and pets are welcome too, while an ice pack freezing service and chemical toilet disposal point are both offered too.
Moffat is open 365 days a year and prices are excellent value. Adults are charged from £5.95 in low season to £9.35 in high season, with children charged up to £2.95 in high season. Non-members are equally welcome and are asked to pay an additional £7.10 per pitch per night.
