SPRF Guided Walks Programme 2019

There is now a confirmed guided walking programme for 2019, this starting with the first guided walk being on the 11th April. This is between St Fillians and Comrie on a section of the Three Saints Way.
To see the complete walking programme for 2019 and to take part we require all walkers to register in advance and they should follow the instructions and link as shown on the downloadable WALK SCHEDULE.

Walk with St Cuthbert

For the third year Channelkirk and Lauder Church are organising a "Walk with St Cuthbert" this being a 17 mile route from Channelkirk to Melrose. If will take place on Saturday 8th June and this is a sponsored walk where you can raise money for your own chosen charity.

It is believed that St Cuthbert was born and grew up in Channelkirk before entering the monastic community at Old Melrose. So this is countryside with long association with the Saint, as well as passing over some great open countryside.

Last year about 130 persons took part in this pilgrimage walk and it is hope that the numbers will again increase this June. This is also a very well organised event with the opportunity to walk all or a part of the route.

In the process of planning and preparing for this pilgrimage walk SPRF has been offering insights and advice and we know that all SPRF members would be made most welcome.

To be part of this you need to register and all the details regarding the event are on the Channelkirk and Lauder website and registration to take part in the walk is via Border Events at
