WALKING - THE ANNANDALE WAY
The Annandale Way is a new 55 mile long distance walking route linking Moffat and Annan that can be walked either north to south or south to north. It’s been developed by Sulwath Connections and local communities with the support of local estates and farmers to help promote Annandale as a new area for walking.
Hightae is the perfect base for the walk with just a small amount of organisation involved to start and finish the various stages and return to the hotel in the evening for some well earned home-cooked food and a wee drink - all set-up for the next day.
A local walking group successfully planned the route around our hotel earlier in the year - give us a call and we can forward an itinerary to you.
The area has a number of fine courses at Lochmaben, Lockerbie, Moffat and Dumfries :
The 7stanes are eight mountain biking centres (Glentress and Innerleithen share one) spanning southern Scotland. The 7stanes mountain bike trails offer everyone no matter how experienced, some of the world's best mountain biking stretching from the heart of Dumfries and Galloway to the Scottish Borders.
The area around Hightae is perfect for cyclists of all standards with a vast network of quiet country roads to explore.
