A one stop place for all your shopping needs - food, snacks, clothes, gifts etc. A big element of the products is the Scottish theme. Lovely clean toilets and afternoon tea from £6 (though we didn't sample this). Very popular with tourists. Well worth a visit if you're in the area but you may need plenty of money! Negative: more...

Visited this wollen mill twice. Both times in jan 2015 and 2016. While on package tour of scotland. It is a convenient coach stop. The mill shop is a bit run down. But has a restaurant and free toilets. And serves as a base to exploring the traditional town of moffat.

We've begun calling into Moffat Woolen Mill in preference to Gretna Green which has changed beyond all recognition. The Mill has the usual tartan gifts so popular throughout Scotland but it also has some interesting gifts of good quality and at reasonable prices. There is an interesting audio/visual exhibition all about the history of weaving. Toilet facailities and parking are... 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
