The 21st Scottish Borders Walking Festival will be hosted this year by Galashiels.

The festival is due to run from September 6 to 13, which also coincides with the return of the railway to the Scottish Borders.

The event is supported by Scottish Borders Council, Focus Centre, Galashiels and SEStran.

There are 28 walks planned this year, to meet all abilities.

Each walk will be accompanied by an experienced walk leader with return transport from the registration centre. There will also be a number of evening events to both entertain and educate festival participants and locals including a ceilidh, quiz night and a talk by the Old Gala Club.

Full details of the walks can be found on the festival website.

Bookings can be made through the website or through Borders Events on 01750 725480.
