The Ladywell Way

SE Scotland, 3 day

The Ladywell Way – 36 miles – 3 days – Motherwell  to South Queensferry. Named after the nearby Lady Well dedicated to the Virgin Mary, this great pilgrimage starts at Motherwell Cathedral, and meets the famous Lourdes “lookalike” Carfin Grotto — built by unemployed miners during the 1930s.  From there, the route passes onto bleak moorland paths, river tracks, the Avon viaduct, and canals footpaths to South Queensferry, with views of the great three bridges crossing the Forth. Here, the Way joins St Margaret’s Way, and in another 61 miles, the famous pilgrimage site of St Andrews. Don’t miss historic gems like William Wallace’s cave, Linlithgow Palace where Mary Queen of Scots was born, Abercorn church, and the famous Hopetoun House.
