Moffat was the first 'Walkers are Welcome' town in Scotland, and from the front door of Summerlea House there are countless paths to follow, ranging from short riverside walks of less than a mile along the River Annan to longer, higher-level walks for more experienced walkers.


Further afield, the Dumfriesshire Dales are made up of the three valleys of, from east to west, Eskdale, Annandale and Nithsdale, all easily accessible from Moffat and all offering walks to suit all abilities.


And, of course, the 212-mile Southern Upland Way skirts the edge of Moffat, while the 92-mile Sir Walter Scott Way starts from the town, as does the 55-mile Annandale Way.


All of the pictures below were taken by us while out walking the region, some walks straight from our front door, many within a 30-minute drive, and those from Langholm around 50 minutes drive. Click on each image for a larger format and caption.
