For all the times have visited Moffat have never visited the reserve. It is signposted on the road into the town off the M74 but we came upon it walking the Annandale Way. Great walks and lots of places to sit for picnics. A lot of thought has been put into its planning and children especially should find it interesting.

I thought this place was a great little find. It's a small but perfectly formed reserve. The variety of habitats is spot on. There's a good sized lake, a marsh/reed bed area, and a pond with a scrape. The attention to detail is lovely. There is plenty of parking for the size of the place. There are several hides which...

We found this very disappointing, I know it is a nature reserve, but it is totally overgrown, and the paths are mostly impassable. Really not Worth a visit.

Really peaceful and the last time we saw an osprey. Less so this time, in fact everyone else seems to have seen more than us recently, but it's still great.

This was a pleasant and quiet area. It had information boards around to read and several hides. A good place to stop and have a picnic or a short walk and some photo taking.
