After the 10 year success of the Walking Festival, this is the first year of a new and broader range of activities and events. The Outdoor Festival will showcase the great things you can do in Midlothian’s outdoors.

Come along, discover the county, and join us for guided walks, talks, wildlife watching, some downhill snow sports, or a cycle through villages, towns and countryside. Have fun, meet nice people and have a great time.
