Walking Routes / The Legs
Converging towards Holy Island / Lindisfarne
Full details of the 2014 pilgrimage Legs will be finalised by September 2013. However the groups described below are currently all expected to run again in 2014 and are already open for bookings or enquiries. We welcome your contacts.
There are seven Legs (groups) for 2014, of which the first five below are all full week routes, then there is a family/children orientated group; and also a long distance unsupported one week wild-camping route. Click the names below for more details, to find which is the one for you...

Fellowship with Christians of many traditions in the picturesque borders on a challenging and enjoyable route over the Cheviots.
Beautiful walking, over shorter daily distances (10 miles approx) than most other Legs, following the coastline south via Berwick.
Steeped in English Christian history, & the footsteps of Northumbrian Saints, this crosses the dramatic Simonside Hills to reach the coast.
A different pace, centred in one place with walks adjustable between 3 - 7 miles, for families with children, all ages from babies & toddlers upwards, including older siblings through to young teenagers. All activities are children orientated.
A longer walk, taking one week to travel from the region of St Andrews, north of Edinburgh, to Lindisfarne. As with the successful routes in 2011 from Iona & 2012 from St Ninian's, this Leg will be unsupported, with bivi-bags / un planned camping. [The route can be provided on enquiry]
