New long distance paths added in Scotland
Bookmark and Share
It is not just Wales that is getting a new coastal path, as Scottish National Heritage has added a new coastal way to its list of long distance routes.

The Berwickshire Coastal Path is one of three added to the list, along with the Rob Roy Way between Drymen and Pitlochry, featuring the countryside inhabited in the 17th and 18th century by the famous outlaw, plus the Great Glen Canoe trail between Fort William and Inverness.

People and places manager at Scottish Natural Heritage Pete Rawcliffe said: "In Scotland we're very lucky to have so many long distance trails running through some of our finest scenery, so it's great to add another three routes to Scotland's best."

The Berwickshire Coast Path may entice a lot of walkers with their hiking boots in the north-east of England too, as it actually crosses the border into the English Berwick in Northumberland.

Perhaps the best-known long-distance path in Scotland is the West Highland way between Milngavie and Fort William, which was extended from 95 miles to 96 to move the finishing point from the edge of the Highland town to Gordon Square in the centre.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801357642-ADNFCR
