Summary: The Sir Walter Scott Way is a cross country long distance walking route which runs from Moffat in Dumfries and Galloway to Cockburnspath in the Borders via Ettrick Head, Over Phawhope, Ettrick Dale, Earl's Hill, Tibbie Shiels Inn, St Mary's Loch, Blake Muir, Traquair, Minch Moor, Brown Knowe, Selkirk, Galashiels, Yair, Melrose, Lauder, Longformacus, Watch Water Reservoir, and Abbey St Bathans. It runs through lowland valleys, beside lochs and reservoirs, alongside the River Tweed and its tributaries, over several hills of the Scottish Southern Uplands and through towns and villages of Southern Scotland and Borders counry, each of which is steeped in history and interest. Along its length, much of which is shared with the Southern Upland Way there are connections with Sir Walter Scott, one of Scotland's greatest writers who loved this part of Scotland which inspired many of his great poems and novels, and where he spent a very large part of his life.
