Annandale Way

Julie Deans and Holly Dog of Gemini Walks on the Annandale Way near the Devil's Beef Tub.The Annandale Way officially opened in September 2009 and is a wonderful walk which follows the magnificent River Annan on its way from its source to the sea.

This 55 mile (88.5 km) walk is brimming with wildlife and culture offering you glimpses into the history and hidden secrets of this quiet and tranquil area of Scotland, parts of which have remained undisturbed for centuries.

 

“…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.
