St Cuthbert’s Way – 62 miles – 6 Days – Melrose to Lindisfarne. One of Scotland’s Great Trails, and a powerful avenue for pilgrimage. St Cuthbert began his religious life at Melrose; this picturesque town is therefore a fitting site for the beginning of your own pilgrim’s journey. From here, you will travel through the sweeping Cheviot Hills, and cross the border between England and Scotland, before heading for Holy Island off the coast of Northumberland Coast; the eventual resting place of Saint Cuthbert, and the site of his original shrine. By following Cuthbert from the hills to the sea, hopefully you too will find the serenity he discovered on the sands of Lindisfarne.
St. Cuthbert’s Way offers:
- an ever changing variety of scenery and spectacular views;
- a unique and truly memorable finish along a causeway exposed only at low tide;
- something of interest for everyone, including a wealth of historical and cultural interest;
- a route which can easily be completed in 4-6 days without requiring a lot of training or high fitness levels.
