St Cuthbert's Way is a 62-mile (100 km) walk through attractive and highly varied countryside between the Scottish Borders town of Melrose and Lindisfarne (Holy Island) off the coast of Northumberland.

The walk is named after a 7th century saint. Cuthbert was a native of the Borders who spent his life in the service of the church. He began his work at Melrose Abbey. He achieved the status of Bishop, and when he died he was buried on Holy Island. He was called a saint eleven years after his death, when his coffin was opened and his remains found to be perfectly preserved.

It is, of course, a compelling walk if you are interested in religious history. For more general historians there are the abbeys at Melrose, Jedburgh and Dryburgh, a Roman signalling station and a Roman road, not to mention the border itself, a violent battleground in the Middle Ages. And for everyone there is the excitement of the causeway, only passable at low tide, to Holy Island.
