The Coast and Castles cycling route, beginning in the vibrant city of Newcastle and finishing in Edinburgh, the beautiful Scottish capital, is a stunning cycling holiday taking in miles of dramatic clifftops and a wealth of historical intrigue. The coast of Northumberland and the Scottish Borders is 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, based on the official Sustrans Coast and Castles cycle route. You can decide how many days of cycling your Coast and Castles biking trip should last - from 2 to 5 days - and choose between a self-guided or fully supported cycling holiday.
