The Annandale Way is a new 55 mile long distance walking route linking Moffat and Annan that can be walked either north to south or south to north. It's been developed by Sulwath Connections and local communities with the support of local estates and farmers to help promote Annandale as a new area for walking.

It starts high above the source of the river Annan with a circumnavigation of the Devils Beef Tub before dropping down its eastern side and following the river Annan along the valley bottom into the picturesque market town of Moffat

...As I join with more and more of my brothers, my memory merges with that of them...
