The Southern Upland Way is a 215m (347km) well waymarked, coast to coast walking route starting in Portpatrick in the west via the hills of the Southern Upland Way to Cockburnspath in the east. This walk is designated as one of Scotland’s Great Trails by NatureScot. The landscape is rich and varied with a story that spans from the ice age to today. The flora and fauna you will encounter are worth researching beforehand to add to the experience. Finally, for the history lovers, don’t forget to look out for ruined abbeys; Wanlockhead, Scotland’s highest village; Traquair House, reportedly the oldest inhabited house in Scotland and Abbotsford House, the home of writer Sir Walter Scott. Something for everyone!
