114 km / 71 miles
The Saint Andrew's Way, a 71 mile walk from Edinburgh to St Andrew's, is a popular medieval pilgrimage route that has been restored in recent years. It takes in some of the area's most breathtaking sights, such as the magnificent Forth bridges, Vane Farm nature reserve and the shores of Loch Leven, before finally finishing at the stunning St Andrew's Cathedral.

A separate pilgrimage route, the St Margaret's Way, also links these cities on a coastal route.
