Opened in 1984 the Southern Upland Way was Britain's first official coast-to-coast footpath. In its challenging 212 mile route across Southern Scotland from Portpatrick on the west coast to Cockburnspath on the east, the path traverses a remarkable variety of scenery, from high hills to fertile glens, from farmland to forestry. On the twentieth anniversary of the opening of the way in 2005 there was a major relaunch of the Way accompanied by a new edition of this Official Guide. In this edition a new approach is taken to the way: the route is broken down into short sections which can be walked in a weekend, with a detailed map to accompany each section. In addition, 64 new short walks linked to the Way are now included in the book and on the two folding OS maps which accompany the Guide.
