This is the latest news page for the Ballater Walking Festival 2020.

A SPECIAL WELCOME FROM THE ORGANISERS

Old friends will, no doubt, have noticed a change of format this year. The new team are embracing both technology with a greater online presence, and environmental concerns with a scaling down of paper – hence this online brochure replacing the hard copy one. We ask for your understanding regarding this, as we know, change is not always easy!

Our strenuous walks this year include some new remote Munros, as well as some old popular ones such as Ben MacDui and Derry Cairngorm. For the less energetic we have stunning walks over lower hills and through the glens. For those new to hill walking or who just want a less strenuous day, the easy walks offer mainly low level exercise.

This year we have also introduced some Special Interest Walks embracing local archaeology, conservation and heritage. We have also added the local Health Walks which are organised independently, but welcome walkers or their partners to join them.

Whichever walk you choose you can be assured of great scenery and the best of company!

The new committee members are (L to R) Carole Nicoll, Lisa MacMahon, Jenny Macmillan and Catherine Watt with help from Gillian Sinclair of BRD. GIRL POWER!
