Has anyone experienced this walk? I've just done a bit of it around Kirk Yetholm and it seemed to be a pretty good walk. Any views on the whole walk would be appreciated, I can then sell it tot he missus as good holliday potential.

We (me, my husband, sister and brother)walked St. C's last September. A great walk, we all loved it. Walking across the sands to Lindesfarne was a wonderful ending to a lovely walk. We took it really easy, seven days walking. Beautiful countryside, very few people, good weather and great accommodation in b and bs along the way. The history and stories connected to St. Cuthbert along the way made it extra interesting. I really can recommend it. It would be difficult to better this walk in my opinion.
If you need any more info just ask.

How was the terrain on this walk? My husband read that it was very muddy. Not sure if this is because the writer had been walking in recent rains or if the terrain is always muddy. Can you comment, please?
We are hoping to do the walk in late July.

Did the walk a number of years ago and thought it was a great walk. Quite short 4/5 days and short days at that but it leaves plenty of time for mucking about.

Whatever your mucking about is:
Shopping,Pubs, Churches, Ruins, Birds, Birds.., St. Cuthbert Stuff, Plants etc.

Scenery is good. It has few short climbs no huge ones. Generally a good walk.

I remember some mud around the end of the first day but that was it. Although the end of the walk had potential for mud in wetter weather.

Can highly recommend staying on the island at the end of the walk for a night.

Can you recommend a book on the walk?
