Newton Stewart Walking Festival

11th - 17th May 2018

Cunningham’s are once again proud to contribute to the Newton Stewart Walking Festival. Walkfest offers around 30 routes over 7 days, with transport and guides included, as well as a programme of evening social events.

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. The festival is still centred on the market town of Newton Stewart but there are walks throughout the Galloway Hills and along the Solway Coast. There are walks for all levels, and you can choose from easy to very strenuous.

Newton Stewart Walking Festival is now in its 16th year. It is run by a group of volunteers who share an enthusiasm and love for Galloway and the great walking experiences it offers.

It started in 2003 with a modest week-end programme of eight walks in and around Newton Stewart. By 2008 WalkFest had grown to a week-long festival consisting of over 30 events, including challenging hill routes, coastal walks and informative evening events.
