Long distance walkers can cover sections of Britain's first official coast to coast footpath, the Southern Upland Way, from Moffat.

The path runs 212 miles (340 km) from Portpatrick on the south-west coast to Cockburnspath on the eastern site.

It passes near Moffat and through spectacular scenery in the area, including the Loch of the Lowes and St Mary's Loch.
