Southern Upland Way

Map of the Southern Upland Way
In the spring of 2007 we walked the Southern Upland Way, Scotland’s Coast to Coast Long Distance Path through the Southern Uplands. The journey took us 18 days, across 212 miles of Scottish countryside, and through several ranges of hills. In proper style we carried all our camping and cooking equipment for wild camping where needed. In addition to camping, we stayed in few of the bothies on route. This is the journal of our favourite Scottish long distance walk and we hope our guide inspires you to go and do it too!
