    Hi Andy

    Thought youd come that way but just wanted to make sure.

    Depends where u want to stop if you come off the m74 at Moffat and follow the old road b7076 runs along side the m74 few laybys along here but if you drive about a couple of miles you will see sign for greenhillstairs takes you ovet the m74 about 1/2 mile along you will see a big parking space on right next to forest nice and quiet.

    If you drive a little further along the m74 or the b7076/a702 you will come to the small village of crawfordjohn if you drive to the north end you will see a big bit of spare ground a few lorries use it but ok for a night and village has a few pubs.

    You could drive further along until abinton drive into village and you will see on the right hand side a sign for wc and small car park with walks down to the river not 100% sure if any signs for no overnighting but cant remember seeing any.

    Hope this helps
    Gerry
