Saint Cuthbert's Way
St Cuthbert's Way


Our parish sits within a substantial part of this wonderful walk. For us it is the most scenic and evocative of Britain’s long distance walk. A substantial part of its 66 miles wends through our part 

of the glorious Scottish Borders. From just past Cessford Castle, through Morebattle, up to the highest point of Wideopen Hill then down into the Yetholms before clambering up into the lower Cheviots and on into England you are in the parish of Cheviot Churches.

We have sensed a responsibility to try and enhance the walkers and pilgrims journey through our parish. The existence of the walk and conversations with many walkers have helped us to realise that Pilgrimage and Hospitality is at the heart of the Christian story and should be reflected in our Ministry.

We have two churches on the route and Linton only a few hundred yards diversion. All are worth a visit in themselves but are there to give space for reflection as people walk through. Morebattle and Yetholm have stamps for walker’s log book.

At Yetholm we are developing the church as a visitor centre and there you can enjoy tea and coffee with free WiFi. We seek to become a Hub on the route, a spiritual resource and a place of hospitality. We would like to think we can help walkers become pilgrims and pilgrims to feel affirmation and value in this journey towards Holy Island.
