Newton Stewart Walking Festival

Newton Stewart Walking Festival is held each year in May with the Mull of Galloway Trail being included for the first time in the 2013 programme. On Sunday 12 May 2013 Robert Clark and Tom Stevenson, who were involved in the creation of the trail, led a party of 24 walkers from New England Bay to the Mull of Galloway. Unfortunately the weather was extremely wet and windy and as a resultor 16 walkers decided to give up at Drummore where they were transported by coach to the Mull. The remaining eight walkers continued to the Mull and were able to enjoy the last few miles after the rain dried up. It is hoped that the trail will be included again in the Newton Stewart Walking Festival at some time in the future with hopefully better weather conditions!
