The Annandale Way

Just spent a beautiful autumnal day walking part of the new Annandale Way in Dumfriesshire. Saturday 12 September was the opening day for this new long distance walk from Moffat to Annan on the Solway Firth following the course of the River Annan from its source to the sea.

It is 55 miles from the high hills above the Devil's Beef Tub passing near the towns of Moffat,Lockerbie,Lochmaben and Annan. Passing through the area long associated with the Border Reiving families of Moffat,Johnstone,Halliday,Irving,Jardine,Graham,Bell and Carlyle this is the perfect walk to become familiar with your ancestral home.


  1. Welcome to the geneabloggers. I am signing up to follow your blog as some of my ancestors are from Scotland. I have been twice and have been to Dumfries on both trips. Love the area.

  2. Thanks for the feedback. I will try and post photographs of Scotland for each posting when relevent. We are having beautiful autumn days here just now,ideal for walking in the hills.
