“…For walkers after Landscapes! Surprises! Nature! Fun! There’s nothing better than the Annandale Way…” Hoddom Primary School.
This is a truly enjoyable walk in this beautiful ancient border region of Scotland.
“In November 2009 we walked the Annandale Way ourselves and were bowled over with the amount of wildlife and nature on this delightful trail. It is a tranquil walk, almost therapeutic as you follow the sound of the river as it winds its way through the countryside. Highly recommended not just by ourselves but by our dog Holly!” Julie Deans & Steve Higson.
One of Gemini Walks most frequently asked questions? Should I choose Lochmaben or Lockerbie on a five day walk?
It really is simply a matter of preference as to whether you prefer Lochmaben or Lockerbie. The village of Lochmaben is certainly more picturesque and on this day you have the highest climb. However, Lockerbie has more facilities with regard to accommodations and dining establishments with it being a larger and busier town.
