Not a lot of people know this but… there are hundreds of miles of quiet, open roads often with good line of sight, jaw-dropping dramatic scenery and plenty of pit stops. And Moffat sits amongst it all. Get up close to Scotland’s fascinating history and seek out its curious landmarks and quirky place names. The tourist crowds just stay on the motorway heading north – but they’re missing a trick.
Bikers are welcome
Moffat is a biker friendly town and Queensberry House is a biker friendly B&B. We are situated in a quiet road just a five minute walk to the centre of Moffat and all its attractions. You can park right outside and there are no restrictions. It’s safe too. To really appreciate this part of the world you should book a few days here. Choose our Bluebell room and you’ll have a room with a view… of your bike. Book your stay here. Read our reviews on here.
Choose an iconic route
The Three Lochs run is a must. It will take you about 75 minutes and is around 42 miles. Along the way you’ll see two of Moffat’s famous landmarks: the Devil’s Beef Tub, a cavernous hollow landscape with an intriguing history, and the Grey Mare’s Tail, one of the UK’s highest waterfalls. Stop at Glen Cafe – which overlooks St Mary’s Loch and, most likely, a car park full of shiny bikes. There are plenty of photo opportunities on your route.
Back at base
Once you’ve returned to Queensberry House we can take care of any wet gear or bulky items and store them in our drying area. We also have a guest lounge where you can plan tomorrow’s trip or simply kick back and reflect on the day’s events.
When it’s time to fuel up, we can point you in the right direction for dinner. Moffat is blessed with a fantastic choice of eateries – from great value fish suppers to award-winning fine dining. Two of our favourites are: Brodies which also has a fabulous gin lounge, and Claudios, one of the best Italian restaurants in the whole of Scotland.
