We provide baggage transfer on the Borders Abbeys Way throughout the walking season this being from April to early October.
In addition we handle directly baggage movements on the Sir Walter Scott Way and the eastern section of the Southern Upland
Way so long as it is part of a complete accommodation and baggage transfer package. Walking Support can also fulfil transfers
on most other routes by using our preferred baggage
transfer contractors. So whatever the route why not contact us for the service or a quotation.
The direct provision of baggage transfer has grown significantly and to address those who only have luggage transfer
requirements we have established a dedicated website
www.baggagetransfer.co.uk, or you can still use this site to find details, costs and to make reservations.
