Description

Rich in history and strong on character, this fantastic Coast and Castles ride provides a true taste of the North. Cycling the coast and castles route, taking in the Northumberland coast makes for a great UK leisure cycling holiday.The ride itself is as much defined by water as it is by land: the River Tyne, the North Sea, the mighty Tweed, Leithen Water, Dewar Burn and the Firth of Forth form an almost continuous, fluid companion for nearly 200 miles.The landscapes are memorable too, though sand dunes, vast beaches, ancient woodlands, castles crowning fists of rock, deep valleys and heather moorland together make for an extraordinary array of scenery.There are plenty of reasons to get off the bike, Holy Island, Bamburgh Castle, a pint at the Ship Inn at Low-Newton-by-the-Sea, the town walls of Berwick and Melrose Abbey, to name a few, but the road somehow lures you on here, on and up until you reach the heights of the Moorfoot Hills and the staggeringly lovely view down to your journey�s end, Edinburgh.
