The walking route circumnavigates the area known as the Devil's Beef Tub
A new long-distance walking route across the south of Scotland has been officially opened.
The Annandale Way covers 55 miles along the scenic landscape between the towns of Annan and Moffat in Dumfries and Galloway.
It has been developed by landscape partnership Sulwath Connections (SC) and the community, in association with estates and farmers in the area.
The route was officially opened on Saturday with a series of guided walks.
SC chairman Roger Grant said it was a "fine example" of partnership working.
"The new route will help to attract new visitors to the area and also offer the opportunity to further develop the tourism industry in Annandale," he said.
The Annandale Way starts above the source of the River Annan and circumnavigates the Devil's Beef Tub - a stretch of land used centuries ago to hide stolen cattle.
The route has been designed to be achievable in four or five days with overnight stops along the way.
