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.

Moffat Academy I am the Annan River, the biggest of the land. the smaller ones go into me, to help me to expand.
Lochmaben Primary Tracing the river along its path like a palm reader following the lifelines on an open, eager hand
Lockerbie Academy The Annandale way is like rain drops trickling through a tree of rivers.
We were very pleased that the daughter of one of the stalwarts of walking in Moffat did the walk in May 2010 and her Annandale Way report with photographs is here to see.
