Distance (miles)128
Overview

'From Oban to St Andrews, crossing the heart of Scotland. It was devised by Brian Smailes who has published a route description and other essential information in the book you can purchase ... Note that the Coast to Coast walk is NOT waymarked. There is a general route description on this page. When used with the rest of Undiscovered Scotland it will give you a clear idea of what the Coast to Coast walk and the places you will be passing through are like. But you will need Brian Smailes' book, plus the relevant Ordnance Survey maps ... and knowledge of how to use them, in order to complete the walk.'
