Southern Uplands

Description

The sparsely populated southern part of Scotland is located south of the line Edinburgh - Prestwick and north of the English border. In this empty space, quite a few long distance trails are laid out. The most important of them is the Southern Upland Way, traversing the entire distance from coast to coast. The mountains may be not as high as in the Highlands, they are wild and remote nevertheless.
