About this book

Follow the footsteps of St Cuthbert in this easy-going walk of 62 miles (100 km) from Melrose Abbey in the Scottish borders to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne in the North Sea. The route passes many fine abbeys, hill forts and castles and includes a section of Roman road. Its summit is Wideopen Hill (368 m / 1207 ft), and its barefoot finale is the Pilgrims' Path to Lindisfarne with its priory and castle. The route is fully waymarked, the gradients are modest and it has welcoming B&Bs and pubs at strategic intervals. Most people will complete it comfortably within 5 or 6 days, and there are welcoming pubs and B&Bs along the route. The guidebook was revised in 2016 for this reprint. It has 60 photographs, shows altitude profiles for each section and has a dropdown map in four panels (scale 1:100,000). The format is lightweight, robust and rainproof.
