Not a bad shop to pass a rainy hour and staff were friendly, but no longer a mill

We originally came here a good few years back (probably around 15) and at that time the mill at the back was quite interesting - dated and tired, as though it had been a decent... read more

We originally came here a good few years back (probably around 15) and at that time the mill at the back was quite interesting - dated and tired, as though it had been a decent museum in the 1970s, but interesting enough that you could look at the mills and read the various boards. This time there is almost none... More

Tartan Tat in abundance! With a sprinkling of reasonable quality goods thrown in for good measure. Aimed squarely at the tourist market complete with see you jimmy hats. Worth a visit for entertainment value but not an accurate account of Scotland by any means. The staff are friendly and helpful though. Just don't expect to trade your beaver furs for... More

Moffat is a historic spa resort or town in the Annandale Valley, 21 miles from Dumfries with wide, tree-lined high street that retains many of its original features. A sheep farming town in the olden days, this history is depicted by the Ram Statue on the high street. It used to be a spa town until 1921, when the Hydropathic... More

I have visited this mill shop for many years and it just gets better. We bought a plaid helmet last year for the grandson and then managed to buy one last week for the other grandchild. They have the same stock in all the year round which is useful if you only call once a year. They have a large... More

Don't quite understand why this is so popular with coach trips, two coach trips with the same company, three visits, don't they understand that once you've seen this shop, you've seen this shop, can't help but think some financial deals are in place here, why else would they be so insistent on continually bringing you here when their only real...

The cafe/tearoom within the shopping complex offers a Roast beef sandwich with chips which will satisfy any hungry traveller. Cafe staff were both welcoming and helpful.

There are some scraps of machinery in the back, but otherwise this is a tacky tourist shop. Felt cheated.

A great shop to spend both time and money, but vastly dependent on coach traffic. Very limited parking provision for private cars. Visited twice recently away from peak times and had problems finding a space despite rest of coach areas sparsely used.
