We were delighted to be joined by Susan and David Barker, owners of the Dell-Mar B&B Guesthouse in Moffat, on our launch day walk to Hartfell!

They told us that Hartfell Spa is a lovely 3 mile walk from Dell-Mar house along a quiet country road, with views to the hills. (We met a beautiful doe roe deer on our last walk along the lane!)

Susan and David explain,

It’s a pretty easy to walk too, about an hour, but there is a taxi that will take you for around £8, Moffat Taxis 01683 221 666. You can walk there and back in a full day, providing you go to the spa and return, if you want to go further than that, you can go past the spa and up to the summit, probably an extra hour or 2.
There is a website that has the walk on it, stage by stage, it gives a distance of 3.5 miles with a time frame of 2-2.5 hours.
We can provide a packed lunch at an additional cost, but there are also plenty of cafes in town, Jack and Rachels, The Rumblin Tum, and Ariete.”

Have a look at the fab gallery of photos they took on the walk (at the bottom of this post)!

Susan and David helpfully gave us an idea of the Restaurants in Moffat: The Black Bull, The Buccleuch (offers 10% discount on food if staying in Moffat), Annandale Arms, The Stag, The Balmoral, The Star, Brodies, Claudios, and Hartfell Restaurant.
