Southern Upland Way Walking Holiday

  • Cross Scotland from coast to coast along its longest Great Trail, the challenging Southern Upland Way.

  • Explore remote territory, with stretches so isolated you won’t see another soul. You’ll visit high moorlands, epic mountains and expansive forests.

  • Test yourself with a series of rugged ascents and long-mileage days, resting at night in elegant towns nestled in the wilderness.
