Stage 5: Sanquhar to Wanlockhead

This short stage crosses scenic moorland to the interesting old mining district along Wanlock Water, where it is worth spending some time exploring.


Most of the route is on paths and tracks. There are some short steep sections and the going can be muddy in places. Care is needed with navigation on the highest sections when it's misty.

Public Transport

There are buses to both Wanlockhead and Sanquhar; the latter also has a rail station.
