This splendid route is one of the four official Long Distance Routes in Scotland and is Britain's first official coast to coast long distance foot-path. The trail starts at Portpatrick, on the south-west coast of Scotland, and runs to Cockburnspath on the eastern seaboard. The path visits Castle Kennedy, New Luce, Bargrennan, St John's Town of Dalry, Sanquhar, Wanlockhead, Beattock, St Mary's Loch, Traquair, Galashiels, Lauder and Longformacus. Highlights includes beautiful coast, a series of delightful lochs and fabulous views of the Lowther Hills and the Lammermuir Hills towards the end of the route.
The trail is waymarked with a black and white thistle logo.
