Forth to Farne Way

Forth to Farne Way Rucksack Readers Walking Guidebook

Forth to Farne Way Rucksack Readers Walking Guidebook

authors: John Henderson and Jacquetta Megarry
Spread this enchanting 70 mile walk over 5-8 days, staying in coastal towns and villages along the way. Start from St Andrew's Kirk on the Firth of Forth near Edinburgh and continue via Whitekirk's 12th century church to Dunbar. Follow the North Sea coastline to enjoy the stunning scenery of St Abb's Head and reach Coldingham Priory, perhaps Scotland's most important Benedictine monastery. Enjoy impressive cliffs and dramatic sea stacks before entering the border town of Berwick by its ramparts and crossing the River Tweed. The route culminates with a barefoot crossing by the Pilgrim's Way to Lindisfarne, where St Aidan founded a monastery in AD635.

This guidebook contains all the information that walkers and pilgrims need to plan their walk. Concise, tested route finding directions are provided together with 15 pages of detailed mapping at a scale of 1:30,000, plus plenty of notes on geology, history, habitats, and wildlife.

The guidebook describes the route as a five-day itinerary, although eight days would provide a more relaxing schedule.
