The nearby River Annan has some of the best salmon and sea trout fishing in Scotland.

It rises at the foot of Hart Fell, five miles north of Moffat. A second fork rises on Annanhead Hill and flows through the Devil's Beef Tub before joining at the Hart Fell fork north of Moffat. From there it flows past Lockerbie, and to the sea in the fishing town of Annan, which is only 6 miles from our hotel.

Two great websites for the river are www.riverannan.co.uk and www.fishannan.co.uk.
