    I am doing the Coast and Castles around Sept and wondered if you would be kind enough to send me the gpx files

    Neither posters have been on the forum for some time.
    Perhaps someone else can help.

    The Sustrans map is pretty good, and as you've seen from remarks about the path south of Berwick, they need your support.

    It also gives you ideas and info for minor diversions - for example Holy Island - which a gpx track won't.

    The route is also well sign posted, and really fairly simple anyway.

    Keep the North Sea on your left (coming south) and you won't go far wrong, unless you plan on doing the inland Borders loop from Edinburgh in which case you will need a map/gpx.

    If it has to be gpx, try a search on one of the navigation sites - I use Ridewithgps - but there are others.

    A few tracks here:[elevation_max]=10000&search[sort_by]=

    Or buy the map:

    Here's mine from 2015 if it helps, you should be able to download the GPX from the Strava links:
    Shields to Alnwick:
    Alnwick to Berwick:
    Berwick to Innerleithen:
    Innerleithen to Edingb:

    I rode up to the start from Middlesbrough:

    Hardest day for me at the time was the ride to Innerleithen, I think a combination of distance, rain and uphill though I was a lot less fit then :smile:

    We did the route last Summer, South to North. It is well signposted and in conjunction with the sustrans map, offered no problems. Coming into Berwick is across fields, but good fun it its way - mostly to hear people on road bikes having a moan :smile:

    Myself and a few chums are just starting to plan this ride out for the summer.

    If anyone who has done it can recommend clean, not-too expensive/fancy accommodation with secure cycle storage for 6 bikes in the following places I'd be very grateful:


    I'm aware of the list on the official site so will check that as a first port of call, but just putting feelers out for any personal recommendations from CCers.

    There's a Youth Hostel in Berwick and a few Travelodges in Edinburgh.
