Walking Holiday in Scotland
from Moffat to the Solway Firth

On this Annandale Way Scottish river walking holiday from the source of the River Annan to sea at the Solway Firth, you see castles, lochs, waterfalls and a variety of wildlife. Situated in  Scotland’s stunning border region The Annandale Way is one of Scotlands most southerly source to sea river walks, easily accessible from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Carlisle.

The Annandale Way walking holiday is a 59 mile way-marked walking trail in the beautiful Scottish border country.  The route starts in the interesting town of Moffat with its fine selection of shops and restaurants surrounded by rolling hills. The walk to the source of the River Annan and the Devils Beef Tub is through some of the most scenic landscape the Scottish borders has to offer.

The Devils Beef Tub is a steep-sided hollow where the reivers used to hide their stolen cattle.

From Moffat the Annandale Way passes rolling countryside and moorland, a heaven for wildlife and sheep.  Soon after passing Spedlin’s Tower, a fortified Scottish tower house dating from the 15th century, the route splits with an option to walk to Lochmaben with its three lochs and castle. 0r the other route takes you to the famous Scottish border town of Lockerbie.

The routes meet again just past the village of Dalton following the now wide River Annan to the town of Annan. The town of Annan dates back to Roman times with its Distillery and good selection of shops and restaurants. From Annan the Annandale Way follows the River Annan via Newbie to its mouth at Barnkirk Point and the sea at the Solway Firth. From Barnkirk there are great views across the Solway Firth to England and the hills of England’s Lake District.

The Annandale Way ends at Newbiebarns with its trail marker and views  along the Solway Firth and the Scottish hills in Galloway.
