You are invited to walk this historic trail through the Scottish Borders and Northumberland countryside.

Follow St. Cuthbert’s Way through the pastoral route taken by St Cuthbert. He spread the Gospel through Scotland and northern England in the seventh century. Cuthbert started his ministry in Melrose, in about 650AD, which is our starting place. He later became Prior and eventually Bishop of Lindisfarne ( Holy Island ), where he died in 696AD, which is our final destination. His remains were taken from the island in 875AD after Viking raids. The relics were eventually laid to rest within a loop of the River Wear, subsequently becoming the site for the magnificent Durham Cathedral in the UK.

Overview

The St Cuthbert’s Way walk begins in the quaint Borders town of Melrose with its magnificent 12th century Cistercian abbey. Our journey leads us over the Eildon Hills and through the delightful village of Bowden. We will follow the River Tweed, and see the Dryburgh Abbey. Our feet will take us down the Roman road of Dere Street and cross the River Teviot near Jedburgh. Yet another castle is in our near future as we continue along this way, the towering Cessford Castle one of several spectacular sites en route to the village of Kirk Yetholm.

Where will we be staying along the Camino?

All of our accommodations are carefully selected. We want you to experience the true Camino, for this reason we try to stay on the Camino or close to it. We try to provide charming and quaint rural farmhouses when available. These are similar to bed and breakfasts. Some nights we use hotels. These hotels are up to our standards and are quaint and locally run and owned. It is a good mix and you will be surrounded by fellow pilgrims along the Way!

How do I prepare for the Camino?

Preparing for a walk is the hardest part. First the mental preparation with all of its concerns and worries. Then the physical concerns, if you can walk any distance you can walk the Camino. After the mental is the prayerful side of preparation. Please pray about your decision, if you are meant to walk you will know it. In your heart, in your thoughts. You will feel the pull of The Camino!

First step, please contact us so we can answer all your questions. We want to discuss all the details. We want to help answer all questions about transportation to and from the pilgrimage.

All you need to do is walk, we will take care of the rest. This pilgrimage is fully guided, from beginning to end we will be there. No need to worry, we have you in our hands.

All our guides started off as a pilgrim as well. We have returned to the camino for years, to help others experience this amazing pilgrimage. We want to share this journey with others and we strive to give you an affordable amazing pilgrimage.
Please visit our How fit do I need to be page for more information.

Should I carry my pack or transfer it?

This is completely up to you. Only you know your physical capability of carrying a pack. My only suggestion is if the reason you want to transfer is to have more clothing than you are missing an important part of the Camino. We should strip ourselves of the comforts of home so we may grow and learn. If health and age are your reason to transfer your bag then my suggestion is to transfer your bag but still pack light. Please check out our Trail info and packing tip page.
