St Duthac's Way

148 km / 92 miles

Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Angus, Dundee, Fife
A Pilgrim coastal route from Aberdeen to St Andrews visiting Montrose, Arbroath, Carnoustie, Montifieth and Dundee.

This route is one of several in a project to develop a new pilgrimage route series around the theme of St Andrew. St Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland, and the town, where his relics were kept, on the east coast of Fife overlooking the North Sea, was established as a pilgrimage site over 1000 years ago. Thousands of pilgrims made their way there every year until the Reformation. Now, St Andrews is better known as the home of golf and the famous university where Prince William met Kate, but the ruins of the huge cathedral complex still dominate this spectacular seaside town and former royal burgh.
