The Well Road Centre ...
The Well Road Centre is a large victorian residence set in its own grounds within the lovely town of Moffat. It is situated in a quiet area yet is only a stroll from the shops and amenities of the town. It caters for the needs of youth groups, church groups, school groups looking for an activity or conference weekend or week. Walking or cycling clubs would find it a good base for exploring the area. The Centre is a suitable venue for residential workshops as well as being spacious accommodation for large families or multiple family gatherings/re-unions.
The Centre was once Warriston School For Boys (closed 1979). For more information on Well Road and the Schools of Moffat, click here
All rooms are fully carpeted and centrally heated. They offer both spacious living accommodation and rooms for a wide range of activities. You can bring your own equipment along - thereafter, there are no limits but your imagination.

Moffat has an excellent range of cafes, giftshops, and grocery shops, many in sight of the Moffat Ram in the High Street square.
