Visit Grey Mare’s Tail Nature Reserve for fantastic walking and wildlife spotting opportunities.
The remote wild mountainous landscape makes this reserve one of Scotland's upland jewels, the centerpiece of which is the spectacular 200 ft waterfall, which cascades into the Moffat Water Valley.
Recognised as a Special Area of Conservation, Grey Mare's Tail Nature Reserve is a paradise for the hill walkers, botanists and wildlife enthusiasts who come to observe the rich collection of some of southern Scotland's most rare upland plants as well as peregrines, ring ouzels and feral goats.
Historians too will be interested to discover evidence of Iron Age settlers and the Covenanters who sought sanctuary here in the 17th century.
Don't miss the chance to take the short walk up to the viewpoint, or for a real treat climb up the path at the side of the waterfall and behind it to its source, Loch Skeen.
