Grey Mare's Tail Nature Reserve
Grey Mare's Tail is an impressive upland property. The centrepiece of this site is the dramatic waterfall, cascading into the Moffat Water Valley. The area is a paradise for botanists and wildlife enthusiasts, who come to observe the rare upland plants, peregrines and ring ouzels, feral goats and, occasionally, mountain hares. Historians can seek out evidence of Iron Age settlers and 17th-century Covenanters who also took refuge here.
