Wamphray Water

A stream of Annandale in Dumfries and Galloway, the Whamphray Water rises to the west of Loch Fell, 4 miles (6 km) east of Moffat. It flows southwestwards for 7 miles (11 km) to join the River Annan. At the confluence of the Lemoir Burn and Wamphray Water stand the remains of a tower-house of the Johnstones and an earlier mound and bailey. In 1848 a railway station was opened at Wamphrygate which was shortened to Whamphray.
