The Forth to Farne Way is a new Pilgrim Route which which was officially launched in October 2017 and makes use of existing core paths and sections of long distance walking routes with optional branches to places of spiritual, natural heritage and cultural importance.
We hope that walking this Way will bring a sense of achievement and the opportunity to reflect on life's journey.
The Pilgrim Way's full distance is 70 miles, that can be enjoyed in 11 stages.

The inspiration, development and promotion of this pilgrimage way has all been achieved through the work of the Forth to Farne Steering Group which is a totally voluntary grouping. It has relied on the voluntary time and enthusiasm of a core group of individuals, support from the Scottish Pilgrim Routes Forum and some very kind donations to assist with printing and promotional leaflets.
Should anyone feel that they would like to financially support the ongoing work of the steering group in its many facits be it waymarking, interpretation or booklets such as “A Pilgrimage in Words and Pictures” this can be done using the secure donate button below.

Donations however large or small will be acknowledge. The donation will be made to SPRF's restricted fund dedicated to the sole use of the Forth to Farne Way Steering Group.

The website is currently undergoing further development to provide enhanced section by section information and walking instructions. There will also be enlargement of the sections that tell the story of the walk be it the religious, historical, natural history or environmental elements of the route.
It is the hope that the website will also develop a comprehensive services section where accommodation, shops, restaurants and tearooms will be listed along with other supporting information such as transport links etc.

Alongside this work there is current publishing activity to produce a comprehensive walker's Guidebook.
This guidebook is produced by Rucksack Readers and will contain all the walker will need to navigate and enjoy this coastal trail and to learn and enjoy the heritage and natural history along the route.
