The best long distance walking trails have two characteristics that make them great: a succession of dramatic landscapes coupled with a broad selection of interesting places to visit along the way. The Southern Upland Way, Scotland’s Coast to Coast walk and the longest of the National Trails north of the Border scores highly on both.
The guidebook divides the walk into thirteen stages of varying length that will fill a two-week walking holiday. This long distance walk is at times a somewhat strenuous one, but advice is given on how all the longer stages may be broken down into shorter, more manageable sections.
Possibilities for shorter walking holidays along the Southern Upland Way are also fully described. The guide is packed with information on the many places of interest passed en route and the historical connections are thoroughly discussed.
