Annandale Way (forthcoming 15 April 2017)

Roger Turnbull and Jacquetta Megarry

The Annandale Way is a charming long walk in a little-known, but very accessible, part of southern Scotland. Walked southward from source to the sea, it starts in the sheep town of Moffat, and runs for 56 miles (90 km) via Lochmaben, with superb views from the top of Almagill Hill. A slightly shorter branch of the route goes via Lockerbie and Eskrigg Nature Reserve. The two branches rejoin north of Annan to reach the Solway Firth at Newbiebarns.

This guidebook contains everything you need to plan and enjoy your trip:
