Walk outline

After meeting at Belford you will be transferred to Holy Island. 

You will then be guided across the Pilgrimís causeway as you cross the sands to the mainland. Walking across the Pilgrims Causeway from Holy Island back to Northumberland is one of the best walking experiences you will have in Northumberland.

After reaching the mainland, the route heads south through Fenwick towards Kyloe Woods, with its surviving population of red squirrels. The guided walk then passes within a mile of the famous St. Cuthbert's Cave, and along higher ground that gives lovely views of the coast, before reaching the village of Belford.

The price includes a T-shirt, which you will receive on the day.
