The Sir Walter Scott Way is a 92 mile / 148 kilometre or 94 mile / 151 kilometre cross-country walk between Moffat in South Central Scotland to Cockburnspath on the South East Scottish Coastline. It runs through lowland valleys, by lochs and reservoirs, alongside the River Tweed and its tributaries, over several significant Borderland hills and through communities steeped in history and interest.

Along its length there are numerous connections with Sir Walter Scott, one of Scotland's greatest writers. It was indeed this countryside that inspired many of his great poems and novels, and where he spent a very large part of his life.

The Way follows for a significant length the waymarked line of the eastern half of the Southern Upland Way and as such it is not a totally unique route. However the way was defined with a specific historical connection as well as a distance and accessibility that suits the growing number of walkers undertaking 5 to 7 day long-distance walking routes.

The Way passes through some of Scotlands most attractive, varied but also under sold countryside. There will be a warm welcome provided to all who come and great Border hospitality offered.
