This guidebook describes two long-distance trails through Northumberland and the Borders. St Oswald's Way runs 97 miles from Heavenfield near Hadrian's Wall. St Cuthbert's Way is 62 miles from Melrose. Both routes pass through Northumberland National Park and follow part of the Northumberland Coast Path to meet at Holy Island.

No special difficulties to encounter on the routes in this guide, though a reasonable level of fitness is assumed. Some of the stages as described are fairly long, though they can be broken down into shorter sections. Crossing to Holy Island must be timed to coincide with low tide
