The waterfallThere are many reasons why Grey Mare’s Tail seemed like an appropriate choice for our first video showcase. There are some stunning visitor attractions in the area, but the natural attractions are often the most beautiful.

This impressive waterfall is one of the highest in Scotland and the area in which it’s situated is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts. Wild mountain goats, ring ouzels and peregrine falcons are often observed and there are also many rare and varied wild flowers. The walk is clearly signposted and runs up the side of the waterfall. It is breath taking, literally! Once you get to the top, there’s the stunning Loch Skeen, a perfect example of a glacial lake (...and an ideal picnic spot!)

The Loch

A friendly goatOur video gives you an insight into the walk, the views you can expect, and the waterfall itself. The walk takes around 1.5-2.5 hours and sturdy footwear and waterproofs are essential. Please note that parking at the site costs £2, so make sure you have change handy. 

The nearest Caravan site is The Camping and Caravanning Club Moffat site, just under ten miles away.

I hope you enjoy your visit.

Coming next…. St Abbs Head on the Scottish Coast.

    Lovely place but where are your waterproofs? Walking in the wild without the right equipment can be VERY dangerous.
    I know there is a footpath but if some one fell how would you keep them warm?
    Please just be careful
