What are the walks?

There’s a mixture of hikes and trails to suit all abilities

Start with a walk about town

Stroll about on the historic trail exploring Moffat’s unique architecture and natural heritage.

The walk with the big reveal

Tackle the Silver Jubilee Walk in a hidden corner of Tweedsmuir.

The exhilarating hike

Tick off a Corbett and two Donalds on this walk in the beautiful Scottish Borders.

The views are worth the legwork.

And back by popular demand

The spooky walk

The Dark Tales of Old Moffat tour with the award-winning Mostly Ghostly team returns with their engaging storytelling.

The challenging walks

The strenuous treks across the Devil’s Beef Tub and the Grey Mare’s Tail will attract the hardy walkers.

Our expert guides will show you the way and keep your motivation going.

They love this landscape and can’t wait to show it off to you.

Or take it slow

And there’s the gentle meander by the River Annan for when you want to take things easy.

The birdwatching walk

Go birding with your guide Dave Dick and see if you can spot a golden eagle.

They are here in Moffat – 48 of them at the last count.

And there’s much more wildlife to spot.
