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.
