Newton Stewart Walking Festival

Thank you for your interest in Newton Stewart Walking Festival. 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 almost 30 routes over 7 days, with transport and guides included, as well as a programme of evening social events.
