Thank you for your interest in Newton Stewart Walking Festival. We are currently in the process of updating this website with details of the festival we plan to run in May 2022. Some of the current details shown are historic. Please note that we are not yet taking bookings for this year's event. We will let you know as soon as bookings open via out electronic newsletter (receive it by signing up to our mailing list below) and on our Facebook page.
Galloway is a wonderful location for walking and whether you enjoy the challenge of our true hill walking experiences or discovering our beautiful countryside and rugged coastline, there is sure to be something for everyone. Our festival is more than a walk in the hills, along the coast or amongst wonderful woodlands - we aim to provide you with a unique and complete WalkFest experience.
Often described as Scotland's best kept secret, Galloway is a wonderfully unspoilt landscape with an endless variety of routes for walkers to enjoy. Walkfest offers around 30 routes over 7 days, with transport and guides included, as well as a programme of evening social events.
You'll see many wonderful photos of our routes on this website. We acknowledge all the photographers, including R Peace, J Deans, S Vest, R Gemmell, M Kneeshaw and B Mitchell.
