St Cuthbert's Way
The St Cuthbert’s Way is a historical walking trip through the Scottish Borders and Northumberland countryside. It finishes with a memorable walk across coastal flats to the spectacular Holy Island, one of Europe’s most famous Christian sites.
This route is perfect for anyone with an interest in history and unspoiled landscapes. It passes close to the graceful ruins of Dryburgh Abbey where Sir Walter Scott is buried, and the cave where St Cuthbert’s remains were stored. Stay in ancient market towns such as Melrose, Jedburgh and Wooler and enjoy views to the surrounding hills. Follow way-marked trails and travel as a pilgrim as you visit places that are closely associated with St Cuthbert’s life. Discover the foothills of the remote Cheviot Hills and enjoy the fascinating approaching to the dramatic Northumberland Coast. Take a moment to admire the far-reaching views and enjoy a picnic in the grass before descending towards the North Sea. Walk across the tidal causeway leading to Holy Island and Lindisfarne, one of the true highlights of this trip.
