Our deadlines to help you walkers, walk-leaders and walk back-markers, are:-

  • Mid-December - indicative list of the 28 walks, 4 per day over 7 days posted here
  • Mid-January - finalised list of walks posted here
  • Mid-February - festival brochures distributed locally/regionally
  • 1st March - this website open to take bookings, through BorderEvents.

NB: One early piece of news: The walk schedule will include, during the week in stages, the complete St.Cuthbert's Way from Melrose to Holy Island.

Other information, kindly given to us by Galashiels (2015) was that they entertained 210 individual walkers who took part in 485 individual walks. The level of enjoyment had been very high.

Galashiels also told us that walkers enjoyed scrumptious cakes and scones before and after the walks. This is on our radar!
