Allegedly it'll be better from the middle of the week if that makes you feel better. Otherwise bring your wellies Wink

From personal experience, having lived in Moffat for a while, until last December, there appeared to be many micro-climates. If it rained in Moffat, up the road 5 miles or so it was good weather, & vice versa. Although, September, for me appears to be a good time to be in the area.

I absolutely loved Moffat & the surrounding areas when it was misty &/or raining, it added to the atmosphere of the surrounding countryside & hills.

I truly miss the Moffat area, and, believe it or not, the varied weather it has. Enjoy your visit & take a chance.

Tuesday isn't looking so great Stuart, so perhaps a hide at Caerlaverock?

I have just consulted my piece of seaweed and it forecasts hurricanes and flash floods with continuous lightning strikes followed by further gale force winds and blizzards. Most roads will be unpassable so take a flask and a sandwich with you. The weather is expected to improve in a weeks time when wall to wall blue skies and temperatures of 25 degrees C are expected.

given the rain, wind and cold we have had in the past week I would take the long route via your nearest airport and somewhere much sunnier!
Having said that, September is meant to improve and is usually a good month for photography.

Thanks all for your input, I am still with mixed feelings but will make the most of any opportunity.
