Product Description

Details

This 100k (60 mile) walk was opened in 1996 and has rapidly increased in popularity, with thousands of walkers walking all or parts of it every

year. Visiting a number of places closely associated with St Cuthbert's life, the journey is full of historical interest and natural beauty. It can be

tackled in its entirety, or sections can be walked separately, making an ideal day or weekend outing. Today's pilgrims travel from Melrose in the

Scottish Borders to the Holy Island causeway at Beal. In the right conditions, the path across the sand here makes a superb finale to the walk.

This completely revised edition of the Official Guide adds an entirely new full-colour folding map, prepared by leading Scottish cartographer

Nicolson Maps for this edition, and packaged with the Guide in a weatherproof wallet. It is illustrated in full colour with photographs throughout

and new maps (also by Nicolson Maps) at the opening of each section. Full of information about the historical and natural features of the route,

the Guide also covers appropriate equipment for walkers, way-marking, car parking, accommodation and the Country Code. After the walk, the

Guide makes a wonderful souvenir of one of Britain's most evocative long-distance ways.
