Often passing the sign for the Grey Mare’s Tail at Moffat I only got the chance to visit in July 2013 after not being able to get parked at St Mary’s Loch. The weather was absolutely glorious although there were blue skies it was still very windy. The main thing that was off-putting was the fact it cost £2 for parking but we’d brought a snack and drink so planned to sit by the river anyway to soak up the sun.
Decent footwear is required if you are planning on walking up the hills towards waterfall and it probably isn’t for anyone afraid of heights! At first we headed up the hill to left (rather than to the right up to loch) but it was a little disappointing as it was barred off for being dangerous. With the wind picking up we decided against the longer walk but there is a little display at the base and it does make a lovely spot for a picnic.
