The Southern Upland Way is a coast to coast hike and makes a nice, wild alternative to northern England’s inescapable Wainwright equivalent. What makes this stride so amazing is its setting. Traversing the fiercely remote, castle-strewn hinterland between the Scottish Highlands and England, this is a challenging trail that crosses probably the most forgotten, little-trodden terrain in Britain. The wilderness feels unexpectedly bleak; and the sparse towns and villages you visit along the way will feel most welcome.
