A few facts about... the Central Scottish Way (Footpath No. 4)

The Central Scottish Way is an old route providing a link from Scotland to England across the Scottish Borders. In places it follows the route of other well known and established footpaths, but at the points that it carves its own way across Scotland, it is unwaymarked which makes it slightly more difficult to follow. 

 

The entire route is 146 miles long and runs along the Forth & Clyde Canal Pathway, Southern Upland Way and Pennine Way in places which are routes that I’ll be trudging along in their own right.

I will be following the Central Scottish Way as a stand-alone trail from Tollcross in Edinburgh over the Lammermuir Hills, past Lammer Law, until the point that it connects with the Southern Upland Way at Lauder, which is around a distance of approximately 43 miles... incidentally the shortest stretch on a footpath so far
