This guidebook describes the Southern Upland Way, and is Scotland's coast to coast long distance walk. At 215 miles long, it starts at the pretty village of of Portpatrick on the west coast, and finishes at Cockburnspath to the south of Dunbar, on the east coast. The waymarked trail is split into in fourteen stages of between 9 to 19 miles long. For each stage there is a clear step-by-step route description is provided for each stage, accompanied by 1:50,000 OS mapping.

The Southern Upland Way is at times a strenuous walk, crossing the remote high moorland of the Galloway Hills, Carsphairn range, Lowthers, Ettrick Hills and Lammermuirs, calling for competence, fitness and self-reliance. This guide presents advice on how best to plan and tackle this challenging but highly rewarding journey. It is possible either to backpack, taking advantage of five bothies and unlimited wild camping possibilities, or to stay in towns and hill villages, B&Bs and inns (facilitated by vehicle pick-up to avoid excessively long walking days). The guide covers all the practicalities, with tips on planning, transport, accommodation, luggage transfer and vehicle support services. A trek planner and useful contacts can be found in the appendices.
