Activities and Events

Whether you're looking for a quiet, relaxing break, fun for all the family or an action-packed mountain biking adventure, there's plenty to do in and around Moffat.

Many people visit Moffat for the excellent walks in the area and river fishing, a stocked trout loch, a bowling green, tennis courts and a golf course are all available locally.

Station Park has a boating lake, a putting green and a children's play area, including the interactive water feature "Moffatasia". The park's magnificent floral displays have helped Moffat win the prestigious Scotland in Bloom and Britain in Bloom awards on several occasions.

Moffat is an ideal location to explore the 7stanes - seven mountain biking centres across Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders.

'Stane' is the Scots word for stone, and at each of the 7stanes locations, there is a stone sculpture reflecting a local myth or legend.

Events in Moffat include Gala Week in mid-July, Moffat Walking Festival in September and the Christmas Festival on the last Sunday in November.
