Portpatrick to Moffat - 8 Days / 8 Nights (Ave 15 miles per day)

    Our 8 day / 9 night itinerary provides an excellent way to traverse the western section of 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.
