Self-Catering Moffat

We apologise that Hillview will not be available for
holiday lets through 2014 and 2015.

Hillview is a nineteenth-century, semi-detached villa with 3-4 bedrooms and a well-established, secluded, cottage garden in a quiet street five minutes walk from the centre of Moffat.

Moffat is a small town at the heart of Southern Scotland. Just two miles from the M74, it is ideal for exploring Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders. Within an hour's drive to the west are beautiful sandy beaches, castles and stately homes, hill-walking, lochs, rivers, farmlands and quiet cycling routes. To the east lie the Grey Mare's Tail waterfall, Sir Walter Scott country and the ruined abbeys of the Borders. The coast-to-coast path, the Southern Upland Way, passes the edge of Moffat. Edinburgh and Glasgow are just over an hour away.

Hillview sits in Beechgrove, a no-through road leading to the farms at the foot of the famous local beauty spot, the Devil's Beef Tub. The Hope Johnstone Park is opposite with tennis courts (Easter-Oct only), sports pavilion, football pitch, swings and the Annan Water. The house looks out onto the Moffat Hills.

Moffat is renowned for its rural charm, friendly welcoming atmosphere, individual, locally-owned shops, its eating out (9 hotels and 3 restaurants) and as Scotland's first Walkers Welcome town. It is at the centre of the 7 Stanes Mountain bike trails. It is with good reason that Dumfries and Galloway brands itself as "the natural place".


The area around Moffat is popular for hillwalking, bird watching and dark skies for stargazers. Click here for details, photos and links to local attractions.
