Whether it’s a big challenge or a gentle introduction to the outdoors, the Moray Walking & Outdoor Festival welcomes you. From humble beginnings, in 2011 the festival has grown to be one of the UK’s premier outdoor activity and walking festivals. With 58 organised events to choose from our 2018 festival was the largest and most varied outdoor activity festival in Scotland. If you are looking for a ‘grand day out’ or activities for a weeks holiday then you have come to the correct place. Group sizes are usually 12 or smaller. Time to start exploring.
