The Borders Walking Festival

2014 31st August to 6th Sept - the Borders Walking Festival is the longest established walking festival in Scotland, and is hosted each year by different Borders’ communities. This year it is hosted by Jedburgh and Denholm.  It attracts walkers from all over the UK and Europe for dozens of organised walks across the breathtaking scenery of the Scottish Borders.

The festival is held each year in the first week of September, with four or five walks of varying lengths and difficulties each day. Tickets are reasonably priced (£4-8 each in 2014), and bus transport is provided where the walk does not start at the festival registration centre. A range of evening events are also put on throughout the week to entertain both visiting walkers and local people.

The 20th Festival will be hosted by Jedburgh and Denholm in September 2014.
