Due to severe flooding of the river Annan many sections of the route are currently underwater and people should not attempt to walk the route or any riverside paths in the area until the flooding has abated.
Two footbridges on the river have collapsed due to the flooding, one of which was a part of the route of the Annandale Way. The Cuthbertson Memorial Bridge was just north of the town of Annan and the Annandale Way crossed it to take route users from Annan to the path heading North along the west of the river. The Diamond Jubilee Bridge was about a mile further up river and was frequently used as part of a circular walk from Annan or Brydekirk along the Annandale Way and back along the other side of the river.
We will be putting diversions in place to allow people to use the Way again as soon as it is safe to do so.
