14 Days / 14 Nights (Ave 15 miles per day)

    Our 14 day / 14 night itinerary, being the most popular of all route itineraries, provides an excellent way to traverse the SUW averaging 15 miles per day through some of Scotland’s most breathtaking scenery. By taking advantage of our Vehicle Support services, the longer sections from Bargrennan to Dalry and Dalry to Sanquhar are reduced into three more manageable sections; thus creating a two night stay in Dalry.
