Summary: The Central Scottish Way is a long distance walking route which serves as a link from Scotland to England across the Scottish Borders. This route commences from the start of the West Highland Way and taking in some of the Glasgow Walkways/Cycleways reaches initially the Union Canal and subsequently the Forth and Clyde Canal to Edinburgh using the towpaths wherever possible. It then strikes south meeting with the Southern Upland Way at Lauder and the Pennine Way via Dere Street at Black Halls just north of Byrness. (Source: LDWA)
