What is it?
A unique literary festival bringing international writers, thinkers and politicians together for a weekend of inspiring debates, literary walks and storytelling bike rides through the beautiful Borders’ countryside.
Literary walks include a Foraging Walk with local writer Fiona J. Houston and a Woodland Walk where you can wander through the trees around Traquair and hear traditional tales. For the more energetic there is a Storytelling Cycle Ride with Scottish storyteller John Nichol.
