The Coast and Castles cycling route, beginning in historic Tynemouth and finishing in Edinburgh, the beautiful Scottish capital, is a stunning cycling holiday taking in miles of dramatic clifftops, sweeping sandy beaches and a wealth of historical intrigue. The coast of Northumberland and the Scottish Borders are littered with ancient settlements, abbeys, watch towers and imposing castles dating back as far as the 13th century, all of which can be explored on this amazing cycling tour. You can visit superb castles like Bamburgh or Dunstanburgh and if the tide is right cycle over the causeway to Lidisfarne or  Holy Island. You will see some iconic Borders scenery with places like Floors Castle, Melrose Abbey and the River Tweed close to the route. The finale is a lovely ride on traffic free trails into the Scottish capital where you finish at the impressive Edinburgh Castle on the Royal Mile. This ride follows the official Sustrans Coast and Castles cycle route but we can alter the route depending on the type of bike you are using or your preference of accommodation. You can decide how many days of cycling your Coast and Castles biking trip should last - however long it lasts it will be a journey to remember!
