LAST STOP : MOFFAT - SCOTLAND



On our way back to Eastbourne, we stopped in Moffat which is situated in South West Scotland just off Junction 15 on the M74. It is a cute town full of beautiful flowers, it had been a former winner of Scotland and Britain “in bloom”, and is proud of its floral displays in Station Park, the High Street and throughout the town.

Moffat has a good selection of shops offering a wide variety of products.We had just enough time to wander around and some of our group did some shopping.

In the nineteenth century, Moffat was a Spa town and this tradition has been recently re-opened with Moffat Well.

The focal point of the town centre is the world famous Moffat Ram which sits on top of the Colvin Fountain. It looks quite impressive !

And these are the pictures I took while walking around









Beautiful flowers everywhere



Pub



Main street








A church near the bus parking from back and front



and another one on the main street, with a little place and benches









Shops and houses





Sheep races



Sheep everywhere ...



and the ram statue, symbol of the town.

It was a pleasant stop, before we continued our way.

Waterloo is a famous place to many tourists, because Napoleon lost his battle here against Wellington and other European countries.
