The Annandale Way is a charming long walk in a little-known, but very accessible, part of southern Scotland. Walked southward from source to the sea, it starts in the sheep town of Moffat, and runs for 56 miles (90 km) via Lochmaben, with superb views from the top of Almagill Hill. A slightly shorter branch of the route goes via Lockerbie and Eskrigg Nature Reserve. The two branches rejoin north of Annan to reach the Solway Firth at Newbiebarns.

A keen lifelong walker, Roger Turnbull retired to his native Dumfriesshire in 2011. He lives on the Annandale Way, and has been a volunteer ranger ever since, working to help maintain and improve the route. He takes a special pride in the standard of its waymarking.
Jacquetta Megarry is a professional author turned publisher. As a late-onset walker, she devised the weatherproof Rucksack Readers format. She has since written or co-authored 18 guidebooks.
