The Southern Upland Way is Britain's first official coast to coast long distance footpath. It runs 212 miles/340 kms across Southern Scotland, from Portpatrick on the south-western coast to Cockburnspath on the eastern coast. The route takes in some of the finest scenery in the South of Scotland and offers superb and varied walking opportunities, still undiscovered by many enthusiasts.
The Way goes through many rough and remote upland areas providing a real challenge for the experienced walker whilst some parts lie within easy reach of towns and villages and are suitable for families and the less ambitious.
Passing through Dumfries and Galloway, South Lanarkshire and The Scottish Borders, the route is managed by the ranger services of the various Local Authorities and funding support from Scottish Natural Heritage.
