Devil's Beef Tub above Moffat

The Devil's Beef Tub is a dramatic hollow in the hills north of  Moffat.

The name derives from its use by the Border Reivers to hide stolen cattle.

The 500ft ( 150m ) deep hollow is formed by four hills:-

Great Hill, Peat Knowe, Annanhead Hill, and Ericstane Hill.

It is one of the two main sources of the River Annan.
