The St Magnus Way only exists because volunteers have given so generously of their time and expertise and funders have backed our vision with the necessary finance. Could you help us develop the route further?

We’d love to hear from you if you can help us in any way.

In particular we are looking for St Magnus Way Piecekeepers – people who live nearby the route, or who walk a section regularly – and are willing to help look after it. The more volunteers we have for this the better. It involves walking a short piece on a weekly basis, checking the path condition, that waymarkers are clean and beacons are operating and reporting any problems.

From time to time we’ll also organise work parties to help with strimming long grass, clearing storm debris etc. There is also opportunities to help with maintaining this website, building links with other organisations and fundraising. Please contact us for more information.


It costs us around £300 a month to keep the website and app in good order. We are grateful to Orkney's LEADER programme 2014-2020 for supporting this for the first three years but we do need income to keep this sites going after this. In addition we would like to build up a maintenance fund to keep the pilgrimage route itself in good order. Your support is very much appreciated. For one off donations you can donate online or you can become a Companion of the St Magnus Way, supporting us regularly through a Standing Order.

This project is being part financed by the Scottish Government and the European Community Orkney LEADER 2014 – 2020 Programme
