Culture and history feature heavily in the most well known long distance paths and trails of South Scotland and borders regions with England. They date from the early stages of Christianity to the Industrial Revolution and Vistorian era of poets and writers. St Cuthbert and St Oswald are just two who are remembered for the spread of the holy word with paths following their lives while Sir Walter Scott and John Buchan provide themed walks with a much more up to date approach. There are coast to coast walks too from the much underrated Southern Upland Way to the ingenious England Scotland Border Walk. Spice everything up with some coastal walks and a few local trails and the result is that there is much ground to cover on these walks in the south of Scotland and border regions.
