Newcastle to Edinburgh (Coasts and Castles)
On this tour we cycle 200 miles (320km) from Newcastle to Edinburgh. This is a rewarding cycling trip that follows the National Cycle Network along a combination of traffic-free cycle paths and quiet country roads.
Starting in Newcastle, the first half of the trip takes us alongside the magnificent Northumberland coastline, blessed with outstanding natural scenery and cultural heritage. Rocky headlands protect countless coves and bays and onshore reserves and coastal islands provide wildlife havens.
North of the Scotland-England border at Berwick-upon-Tweed, the route moves into the Tweed Valley where quiet lanes lead us through beautiful border country before a gentle climb onto the Moorfoot Hills into Midlothian. From here spectacular views of Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth unfold as we cruise into Scotland’s capital city.
Included with our Newcastle to Edinburgh trips are accommodation, baggage transfer, route notes, vehicle support and daily briefings, with the option of adding bike hire if required. We can also offer a gentler 4-day alternative.
