Southern Upland Way

A long distance footpath in southern Scotland, the Southern Upland Way stretches across the Southern Uplands from Portpatrick, Dumfries and Galloway, in the west to Cockburnspath, south of Dunbar, in the east. Opened in 1984, its total length is 212 miles (340 km). The longest of Scotland's long distance footpaths, it is looked after by Countryside Ranger Services based at Harestanes and Dumfries. Passing through most of the habitats and landscapes of Southern Scotland, it takes between 10 and 20 days to walk the entire route.

The Southern Upland Way is now part of the E2 European Long Distance Path, which extends south through England, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and France.
