An Online Journey: St Cuthbert's Way

An Online Journey

BDSDigital was commissioned to design and build the official website of St Cuthbert’s Way, one of the most beautiful, varied and enjoyable long-distance walking routes in Britain, and one of Scotland’s Great Trails.

Bridging the national border between Scotland and England, this inspiring cross-border route links Melrose in the Scottish Borders, where St. Cuthbert started his religious life in 650AD, with Holy Island off the Northumberland Coast, his eventual resting place and his original pilgrimage shrine.

“This was a fantastic project,” says Nicky O’Toole, Design Manager at BDSDigital. “It has rich cultural content, fantastic photography, varied sections that inform and enable the visitor to enjoy the footpath and a strong design element that the team at BDSDigital love to tackle.”

The footpath covers one hundred kilometres of spectacular Borders and coastal scenery that is steeped in history.

The website offers a complete guide to the footpath section by section and integrates support, such as accommodation, transfers of luggage, food and drink in an architecture that has the hallmark clarity of a BDSDigital project that combines top quality design with excellent build.

A shop is also built into the website to allow walkers and enthusiasts to purchase more information about all aspects of the St Cuthbert’s Way experience. There is also a social media feed so visitors can share experience and keep up-to-date with events.

“I like to think that the BDSDigital St Cuthbert’s Way website will inspire visitors to put on their boots and get walking,” concludes Nicky. “It was certainly an adventure of discovery designing and building it, and one of which the team is particularly proud.”
