Forth to Farne Way - North Berwick to Lindisfarne

Forth to Farne Way - North Berwick to Lindisfarne

This enchanting 70-mile pilgrim route starts from North Berwick on the Firth of Forth near Edinburgh, and continues via Whitekirkís 12th century church to Dunbar.

It follows the North Sea coastline to the stunning scenery of St Abbís Head and visits Coldingham Priory, perhaps Scotlandís most important Benedictine monastery.

Enjoy impressive cliffs and dramatic sea stacks between visits to historic fishing villages.  Cross the border and enter Berwick with its ramparts, walls and bridges across the River Tweed.

The route culminates with a barefoot crossing of the Holy Island sands to Lindisfarne, where St Aidan founded a monastery in AD 635.

Most people will complete the route within 5 to 8 days, staying in friendly B&Bs along the route, but it can also be done in several shorter expeditions using train and bus.
