Thank you for that; it would be useful if you could produce a Google Earth file (kml) from it. Here's the distances for the Corunna branch, as measured on IGN maps:
Corunna - O Burgo (church of Santiago) 8km (a largely urban section along roads)
O Burgo - Bruma 23km
(from the airport is about the same as from O Burgo depending on whether you go north or south of the airfield itself to get from the terminal building to the route)
So, adding to your numbers, Corunna-Santiago 75km or ca 67km from the airport.

Peter - I've pm'd you on this very subject - sorry I've only just noticed this post. As I explained there seems to be a serious discrepancy between the estimated distance between Betanzos and Hospital de Bruma and the reality of walking it!

It would be good to resolve this as I suspect the view of some that this stage is over 32 k might put people off!

The "official" Xacobeo distance is 28km

There are always discrepancies on different websites, as it depends on how you measure it. The more detailed the scale, the longer the measurement will be. Bill's estimate seems overlong. I don't know how either he or Pat and Francis for the CSJ guide measured it; there may well have been route changes since the latter.
I found my map book i used produced by concello de neda and has the following distances

Ferrol - Neda 12km
Neda = Pontedueme 13km
Pontdueme - Mino 10km
Mino- Betanzos 8Km
Betanzos - Leiro 14km
Leiro - Bruma 14km
Bruma - Ordes 14km
Ordes - Sigueiro 16Km
Sigueiro - Santiago 18Km
