The Annandale Way is a 56 mile (90km) long distance walking route starting in the hills above Moffat and following the River Annan down to the Solway Estuary at Annan and can be walked either north to south or south to north.

It was originally developed by Sulwath Connections and local communities in 2009 with the support of local estates and farmers to help promote Annandale as a new area for walking.
