St Margaret’s Way starts from the centre of Edinburgh, taking you on bike paths and quiet roads to the Forth Road Bridge, then spectacular scenic coastal tracks and former pilgrim trails through local communities, to the famous ancient town of St Andrews, with a total distance of about 100 km. And, if you are running out of time, you can always hop on a bus or train. There are excellent public transport services to St Andrews.
For those with more time, instead of going north from Earlsferry, continue along St Margaret’s Elbow following Fife Coastal Path an additional 40 kms to St Andrews.
A “Must” for Camino enthusiasts.
Distance: 100 kms
