The walk sets off from Gretna, on the Scottish border, on Friday 30th July, and ends in Edinburgh on Sunday 29th August.

We aim to raise awareness of the nuclear convoy that regularly carries nuclear warheads by road to Faslane naval base, on the west coast of Scotland, where Trident nuclear submarines are based, from Burghfield in the south of England. We shall also aim to share information about alternative energy and sustainable lifestyles, while exposing the deadly effects of the civil and military nuclear industries.

This is an open walk, accessible for all and focused on creating a family-friendly atmosphere. We will walk, on average, 15 miles per day. You can join us for as long as you want – a single step or the whole way. Bring music, banners & good humour!
