First of all - let me just say I'm a Scot and I'm proud of my country and culture. But the Moffat Woolen Mill to me represents the tacky end of our tourist trade. As soon as I walked in and heard the background music - the bagpipes version of the Queen hit "Radio Gaga" - my heart sank. There... More

This is a very bland building with a cavernous shop filled with the usual tourist goods just like any other woollen mill shop. Inside the floors are very uneven so not really good for anyone with walking difficulties the staff pounce on you for a sale probably because most visitors are browsers brought in by coaches The dining area is...

As far as these places go this one is pretty large and has a good range of goods. Having said that - the goods are exactly the same as you will find in every other "Woollen Mill" shop in the UK. Been to one and you have been to them all.

walked here hoping to see some ancient buildings and a mill. Found a cavernous shop full of cheap and undesirable items designed for tourists who think they are getting a bit of Scotland to take home. Signs in Japanese and Chinese (I think...) says it all

We visited this place on our way upto Dunoon. It was a lovely shop with tea room... There were plenty of things to look at and the tea room was delightful with a large conservatory with plenty of seating. The staff were extremely courteous and the food/drink was very nice. The toilets were kept in good clean condition. I would... More

Every town we visited had a woolen mill. I thought the cafe was very good but the shop left me cold. However the redeeming feature for me were the very friendly staff.

The Moffat Woolen Mill is a great place to shop for something decidedly Scottish. Lots of shortbread, tartan etc but added to this there is also a great selection of clothes, foods etc. What I would say however is it that it is not great to push a wheelchair round, everything is too close together to make it easy to...

All over the world you find places that people either love or hate. So reviews tend to be very firm. My wife loved it. I didn't. She's not writing , so sorry Moffat Mill you don't get many points. Typical terrible tourist trap.

Excellent place to stop for coffee or a meal. They have a small coffee shop and a larger restaurant. Also, plenty of good clean w.c.'s. We stopped whilst on a coach trip and there was plenty of room for us and the other coaches as well as visitors by car. The whisky shop is very good value, and the Mill... More
