Galashiels AUTUMN Walking Festival – Toutings Birks, Catrail and ancient forts of Galashiels

Check in at Hike & Bike Hub!

Leaving Gala we will skirt Galashiels and head over the spur of Gala Hill. After taking in the views of the surrounding area from Touting Birks Hill we will take time to explore the ancient Catrail trench and two of the local ancient forts. Our journey back to Gala takes us along the River Tweed, past Abbotsford, home of Sir Walter Scott.

We try, as far as possible to provide walks for a range of capabilities. All routes are risk assessed and may be subject to change on the day as part of the dynamic risk assessment by trained walk leaders.

Whilst we do our utmost to keep the costs of our festivals to a minimum, there are inevitably some costs involved in running a walking festival.

We offer our walks on a donation basis – PAY WHAT YOU CAN! 

To allow us to offer future events, any donations (payable by cash or card in the Hub) are most welcome. We are often asked what would be acceptable as a donation and we usually suggest £5. However this is not a set amount, and we only ask that you PAY WHAT YOU CAN!

Spaces on walks can be reserved through the Eventbrite booking platform or by direct contact with Hike & Bike Hub – 07476 316242
