Getting There

The nearest rail station is in Lockerbie, 24km (15 miles) south of Moffat. Call tel. 08457/484-950 for train information. Getting to Lockerbie sometimes requires a change of train in Dumfries, so passengers from Edinburgh or Glasgow often transfer to a National Express bus at Dumfries for the 35-minute trip straight to Moffat's High Street, which costs £3.50 one-way. If you are coming from the Lockerbie rail station, though, you can get a National Express bus to Moffat; buses run four times a day, and the fare is £5 each way. For more bus information, call tel. 08717/818-181.

If you're driving from Dumfries, head northeast along A701. From Edinburgh, head south along A701; from Peebles, drive west, following the signs to Glasgow, and then turn south on A702 and merge onto M74, following the signs to Moffat.
