Welcome to Gretna & Moffat
A visit to Moffat will help you refresh mind, body and spirit. Whatever way you choose to relax and unwind, Moffat has something to offer.
If healthy exercise or bird watching is not your thing, choose to pamper yourself, or check out the range of independent speciality shops. You will find items in Well Street which you are unlikely to find anywhere else – The World Famous Old Blacksmith’s Shop is one of Scotland’s earliest visitor attractions… curiosity has attracted travellers to visit Gretna Green since the middle of the 19th Century.
The town of Gretna was built during the First World War to provide homes for 30,000 employees of a munitions factory that was the biggest in the world – an incredible nine miles long! Learn the story of the factory at The Devil’s Porridge in Eastriggs, an exhibition named after the nickname given to the explosives made at the factory.
