Moffat to St Ann's

The second stage of the Annandale Way is mostly a mix of minor roads, forest tracks and field paths with a section of moorland walking. The route leaves Moffat on the A701 then crosses fields to join the Southern Upland Way and climb onto moorland on the west side of the valley from where it descends to plantations. The stage ends on a bus route, or alternatively walkers could continue onto the following stage to either Lochmaben or Lockerbie.


The going is good on this section with dry paths, firm tracks and paved roads. There is one ascent on a road out of Beattock but otherwise it's fairly level.

Public Transport

Moffat is served by bus, as is the A701 (north of St Ann's) at the end of the stage.
