Organisers Karen Bartke and Grace Nicoll write

The Inverness festival is a week long celebration of walking and wheeling.

We aim to shine a light on the wonderful opportunities available in the heart of the Highlands to enjoy the benefits of being active outdoors!

The festival is organised by Partnerships for Wellbeing who have organised free Health Walks since 2004 and brings together nearly 30 different organisations to offer a variety of activities for different ages and abilities.

Getting active is great for our health & wellbeing and can also benefit the health of our environment. We can all play our part in reducing our carbon footprint by taking short, local journeys by foot, wheeling or public transport. The festival will champion active travel in all its forms!

This year we are also launching the Loop of Health, History & Hope where we are inviting walkers, wheelers and cyclists to explore the active travel paths circling the city. Our colourfully illustrated ‘Loop Map’ will guide you to discover 20 different points along the route where you’ll find a QR code to see bird’s eye views of the city, and some historical tidbits about each location. Look out for pink elephants, Greek philosophers and some very studious swans…pick up a map and you’ll find out what we’re on about!
