St Cuthbert's Way

63 miles (101 km)

This walk runs from Melrose in the Scottish Borders to Lindisfarne Castle and Holy Island.
The route is typically walked from west to east in four stages:
Melrose to Harestanes - this section takes in Melrose Abbey, the River Tweed and the Eildon Hills before coming to the 18th century Monteviot House on the River Teviot at Harestanes.
Harestanes to Yetholm - a challenging section taking you to the highest and midway point of the route at the summit of Wideopen Hill. The section also passes through Cessford Moor and past Cessford Castle before reaching Town Yetholm on Bowmont Water.
Yetholm to Wooler - a wide open section which takes you into Northumberland National Park and has terrific views of the Cheviot Hills. You'll climb Yeavering Bell hill near Wooler where you can find the largest Iron Age hillfort in the region. There's also some attractive woodland at Wooler Common and views of Humbleton Hill where there is another hillfort to see.
Wooler to Lindisfarne - the final section passing Doddington Moor and Buckton Moor before finishing on Holy Island. On the way you'll also pass St Cuthbert's Cave. The monks of Lindisfarne reputedly brought St. Cuthbert's body to the site in AD875 following Viking raids on the Island.
The walk is waymarked with a cross on a white disc.
