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, including a detailed route description for walking from north to south, background on the history and economy of Annandale, and a foreword by broadcaster Stephen Jardine. It also includes:
- Seven pages of habitats and wildlife with superb images
- Planning information for transport and accommodation
- Seven pages of detailed mapping of the route at 1:44,000
- Summary of each section showing distance, terrain and food/drink stops
- Concise directions for those who prefer to walk south to north
- Lavishly illustrated, with over 100 colour photographs
- Rucksack-friendly format, printed on rainproof paper.
