The trip will begin with your arrival in Edinburgh airport as close to 9:30 am as possible on June 20th, 2020. You can plan your departure from Edinburgh any time of day on June 29th. The cost of the trip will be $1250. You will be responsible for arranging your airfare, lunch and dinner all days except for the stay on Lindisfarne (also known as Holy Island). We will walk a total of 62 miles over the course of 6 days staying at bed and breakfasts along the route each evening. The first two days and the final day of walking are lighter with three significant days of more strenuous walking in the middle. The terrain is hilly and includes four climbs of 300-400 meters. We will carry or buy our lunches along the way and eat dinner together each night in local pubs and restaurants. A luggage service will transport our bags between stays.
