Thank you for visiting the website for Newton Stewart Walking Festival. We are in the process of updating our website we details of the 2019 festival, which will run from 10th to 16th May 2019. Please note that some of the details on the website still relate to last year's event and we are not yet open for bookings for the 2019 festival. We will let you know here as soon as bookings open.
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, R Gemmell, M Kneeshaw and B Mitchell.
