Devil's Beef Tub

A dramatic hollow in the hills to the north of Moffat in Dumfries and Galloway, the Devil's Beef Tub can be viewed from the A 701 road from Broughton as it twists downwards into Moffat. Located near the border between Annandale in the south and Tweeddale in the north, it is dominated by the Great Hill which rises to 465m (1527 feet). At the bottom of the hollow is a martyred Covenanter's grave. The Devil's Beef Tub was also known as the Marquis of Annandale's Beef Stand on account of its use by the men of Annandale as a place to hide stolen cattle.
