The Way is described in six sections, this being divided in a manner that will suit the general long-distance walker. The route also has an alternative route option in the third and fourth sections which adds interest to the Way. This route choice and dividing the sections into different lengths can provide a wide range of walking options but accommodation and services may prove to be somewhat more difficult to arrange in some of these cases.

To access each of the sections either click on the requisite part of the map or utilise the right-hand buttons.

In addition the website carries a lot of extra information that will help the walker plan for the walk.

Prospective walkers are encouraged to also access all the navigations buttons on the left or below to learn about the interest, news & history related to the walk, and to plan for accommodation & services that will make the walk possible.
We strongly encourage all walkers who are requiring overnight accommodation to only start the walk when they have this arranged. This is not a walk where there are opportunities to pick up beds without prior booking (except for Selkirk, Galashiels and Melrose areas). Neither is it a walk where you can easily find transport to populated areas.

There has now been introduced a Walker's Completion Certificate. This is available free of charge for any walker who has completed the 92/94 mile route in a continuous walk. Click here to find our more information.

During the walking season for 2010 there has been renewed activity associated with planning application for additional wind turbines close to the walking route. There are already 22 turbines at Black Hill close to Longformacus (the closest being approx 360 metres from the path). The two applications numbering an additional 25 turbines on the section from Traquair to the Three Brethren has now reduced to only one application for 13 turbines with the Minchmoor application being refused by the local planning authority.
