A rugged coastal adventure from Tynemouth to Edinburgh.

Trip overview

A 4-day tour from Tynemouth to Edinburgh through probably the most scenic, historic and all-around awesome landscape in the country; Northumbria and the Scottish borders. After an evening meet-and-greet on the beach (around a fire with plenty of grub from award-winning restaurant Riley’s Fish Shack), we set off bright and early the next day on our 3-day epic adventure passing no less than nine jaw-dropping coastal castles, the ancient capital of Northumbria, the beautiful causeway of Lindisfarne (with an optional tide-dependent dash across it) and much much more... before cutting inland along the River Tweed towards Edinburgh.

With multiple pit-stops in cosy cafes, sleepy fishing villages and local pubs, and with countless opportunities for outdoor swims and dips, we hug the coastline for 199 miles all the way to the Scottish capital. Expect long but easy days (if that makes sense!) made all the easier with good-night’s-sleeps in comfy guest houses and B&Bs along the route. Cycle at your own pace. Feeling fit? No probs, crack on ahead and regroup at different points throughout the day.
