The St Cuthbert's Way is a new long-distance path established in 1996 linking the Southern Upland Way at Melrose in the Scottish Borders on route to Kirk Yetholm (finish/start of the Pennine way) and finally to the Island of Lindisfarne. It was here St Cuthbert lived for a period, when he became famous for his healing powers. He then moved first onto St Cuthbert's Isle, just off Holy Island as he was aware of the need for more solitude. Later he moved again to Inner Farne, where he died. His body was then returned to Lindisfarne. The journey starts at Melrose Abbey to St Boswells along a Roman Road to the outskirts of Jedburgh. From here to Morebattle and across the Cheviot hills to the old town of Wooler. The final leg is via Fenwick and onto the Causeway to holy Island, where timings have to coincide with low water.
