St Cuthbert’s Way threads its way through the Scottish Borders and Northumberland landscape, joining together places associated with the 7th Century Saint of the same name. St Cuthbert is the patron saint of Northern England and is credited with the spread of Christianity throughout the area. Beginning at the age of sixteen, he walked these same farms, woods, and moors to minister to people where they were.
On our St Cuthbert’s Way walking holiday you will visit a number of the places associated with St Cuthbert. You’ll begin in the market town of Melrose in the Scottish Borders and finish with a memorable walk over the causeway that crosses the coastal flats to Holy Island on Lindisfarne, one of Europe’s most famous Christian sites.
This route lends itself to visitors who are interested in religious history as the route passes close to graceful ruins of Dryburgh Abbey (where Sir Walter Scott is buried) as well as the cave where St Cuthbert’s remains were stored.
