Borders walking festival history

The first week long walking festival was held in West Linton in 1994.

Since then, Scottish Borders Walking Festival has moved from town to town each year.

Festival goers come from around Britain and the world to experience the best of the Borders landscape.

The legacy of this long running festival has been the creation of annual weekend walking festivals in some Borders towns.
