Location:

13 Days / 13 Nights (Ave 16.5 miles per day)

    Our 13 day / 13 night itinerary averages 16.5 miles per day through some of Scotland’s most breathtaking and varied scenery. This itinerary involves walking the longer sections from Bargrennan to Dalry and Dalry to Sanquhar rather than reducing these into three more manageable sections. We would suggest that only the more experienced and conditioned walkers should attempt these sections.
