Welcome to the official website of St Cuthbert’s Way, one of the most beautiful, varied and enjoyable long distance walking routes in Britain, and one of Scotland’s Great Trails.

Bridging the national border between Scotland and England, this inspiring 100km (62.5 miles) cross-border route links Melrose in the Scottish Borders, where St. Cuthbert started his religious life in 650AD, with Holy Island off the Northumberland Coast, his eventual resting place and his original pilgrimage shrine. Although inspired by St. Cuthbert, this is far more than a pilgrimage route.

100km Distance Walk

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 range of baggage transfer services;
  • accommodation along the route to suit individual budget and taste;
  • ready-made packages which can be booked with one button or phone call, where somebody else makes all the arrangements for you.
