Routes Supported

We believe in only offering services on walking routes where we have extensive knowledge of the Way. The routes supported are:-

For extensive detail and pictures of these walking routes just click on the hyperlink and visit their respective websites.

St Cuthbert's Way at Cessford Although not listed above and actively promoted we have set up walks for several on the Kintyre Way and the Cowal Way, these routes opening up the magnificent scenery of Argyll.

Additionally work is currently underway to explore and develop a Coast to Coast route between Iona and St Andrews. A part of this is close to being a reality, this being known as the Three Saints Way.
Another extended walking route that is being explored and can hopefully become a reality in the not too distant future is a route between Glasgow (St Mungo's Cathedral) and Whithorn.This is now known as the Whithorn Way and for more information on this routes development click on www.whithornway.org.
The most recently established Pilgrim Way is the Forth to Farne Way. This route is between North Berwick and Lindisfarne and follows a part of a medieval pilgrimage route linking St Andrews and the Holy Island. The route can be walked in either direction and makes use of parts of the John Muir Way, the John Muir Link, the Berwickshire Coastal Path, the Northumberland Coastal path and finally (or at the start) the St Cuthbert's Way as it crosses the sands onto the island. For more information on this route and to learn of the heritage and natural history surrounding this Way link to www.forthtofarne.org.

More information on all these pilgrimage trails can be found by linking to the SPRF website.

Although we would like to be able to provide details on many more of the Long Distance Walking routes around the UK we are geographically and staff restrained. We are however able to recommend to keen Long Distance walkers the link below to the Long Distance Walking Association (LDWA).

The LDWA is an Association of people with the common interest of walking long distances in rural, mountainous or moorland areas. By joining the LDWA, you will meet other like-minded long distance walkers and gain access to information on walking events and long distance walking routes all over the UK.

We also recognise that there are many other activities and areas where the active walker might want to get involved and if this is within Scotland then we recommend that you visit the following website.
