Annandale Way (incl. GPX!)
This 4-stage moderately difficult walk from Moffat to the Solway Firth has a few steep sections and map reading skills are always essential. The Annandale Way, one of Scotland’s Great Trails, offers the walker the natural beauty and tranquillity of this somewhat lesser known part of Scotland. The trail is mostly clearly waymarked and, starting out from Moffat, it winds slowly south. Some 13 miles from Moffat at St Ann's (Millhousebridge actually), the more strenuous option continues via Lochmaben but there is an easier branch through Lockerbie. Both spurs unite at Hoddom Castle. The trail finally finishes at the shore of the Solway Firth.
Note: there is no accommodation at St Ann's! If you want to carry strait on to Lochmaben or Lockerbie you just might consider taking a bus.
