Number 12 is a ground floor apartment and a perfect cosy retreat tucked away from the famous ‘double’ High Street of Moffat; yet only an easy stroll takes you to the many facilities on offer here. Number 12 offers everything you would wish for and more with thoughtful little touches added for your comfort. Moffat and the local area offers a haven of choice whether you want to shop, fish, walk, golf, bird watch, cycle, gold pan or check out the local history; this area really offers everything for everyone. During the 18th century, Moffat was a famous and fashionable spa town attracting many people to sample its waters including Robert Burns and James Boswell. The High Street is one of the broadest in the country and houses many individual shops tempting shoppers to buy a range of wonderful wares from succulent toffee to the myriad of colourful tweeds. A monument to a ram in the High Street plays tribute to sheep farming, the area’s main livelihood.

About the local area

Moffat Mill has a superb range of cashmere and wool on offer, the colours reflecting the heathers and wild flowers of the surrounding hills. Our Victorian ancestors loved the thrill of drama and excitement and there is no better place to sample this than to view the Devil’s Beef Tub. In reality it is a natural depression but it is easy for the imagination to run riot when mist appears to rise from its cauldron. In the past, the ‘Beef Tub’ was used as a hiding place by cattle raiders. The countryside around and about seduces your senses into thinking you are much further north. The wild and desolate beauty of The Moffat Hills is part of the Southern Uplands, an extensive area of outstanding natural beauty in the south of Scotland that crosses through the two counties of Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders. The area supports one of the greatest ranges of rare upland plants in Southern Scotland. The varied bird life includes heron, peregrines, skylarks, dippers and grey wagtails. There are some lovely walks around and about including waterside walks, Gallow Hill, Hartfell Spa and the Craigieburn Forest. The Grey Mare’s Tail is a magnificent waterfall and the fifth highest in the UK. Amidst unique and dramatic scenery it is a superb example of a hanging valley. The waterfall cascades from Loch Skeen into the Moffat Water Valley from a rocky precipice 60m (200ft) above. Continue on from the waterfall to St Mary’s Loch situated in some of the most beautiful countryside around. Here is the Tibbie Shiels Inn once the haunt of many literary worthies of their day. For a day out with a difference try your hand at gold panning. In the past, mines in the Lowther Hills have produced lead, gold and silver including the gold in the crown of James V and his queen. Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders have always been a hotbed of adventure but one of the greatest asset to this region has to be the world acclaimed network of mountain biking known as the 7stanes.
