Thank you for visiting our website with our latest Autumn Bulletin.

The Way of St Andrews has been revived as one of the great pilgrimages of the world. In time, we hope it will rival that other great pilgrimage, the famous “Camino” to Santiago de Compostela, which every year draws over 200,000 pilgrims, mainly on foot or bike.

This year we are pleased to announce a new route, the Ladywell Way, and work is being done to complete a further long route, St Wilfrid’s Way, from Hexham. So that, with St Duthac’s Way from Aberdeen, St Columba’s Way from Iona, and St Margaret’s Way from Edinburgh, makes a total of five pilgrim ways so far to St Andrews.

We are also experimenting with pilgrim “loops”, the first being a spectacular detour, “St Margeret’s Loop”, from North Queensferry on St Margaret’s Way to the burial place of St Margaret in Dunfermline.

The Roman Catholic Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh, and other church leaders were strong supporters of this revival and particularly hope that young people will take part.

Remember, everyone is welcome no matter what religion or belief. Please look at our Questions and Answers for guidance on our plans and how you can participate.
