We offers a door to door service along the length of the Sir Walter Scott Way & the SUW from Beattock
eastwards based on the route being undertaken in 6 stages.
There is a minimum charge of £175, this allowing for up to 2 items of luggage being transferred over the six stages.
For additional items between 3 and 4 the cost will be £55 per item.
For additional items between 5 and 8 the cost will be £45 per item.
For additional items above 9 the cost will be £25 per item.
If the route is being shortened or extra stops are being introduced the costs offered will be pro-rata to
these above with the exception of the minimum that will remain fixed at £175
The costs are fixed regardless of the accommodation selected with the exception of :
- Ettrick Valley - Tushielaw: supplement of £25 per walking group
- Dunbar: supplement of £25 per walking group
- Coldingham: supplement of £25 per walking group
- Berwick upon Tweed: supplement of £30 per walking group
This charge is based on considerable additional
mileage being required by our vehicle to service these locations.
If the walker is ending the walk in Cockburnspath and not staying that evening in Cockburnspath or one of the
other nearby communities then we can arrange to meet the walkers at a defined time up to 5.00 pm and hand the
luggage over to the group. There is a supplement of £25 for this service.
The prices detailed above are based on providing the service for walkers travelling in a west to east
direction along the route. We will also handle walkers in the reverse direction however there may have to be a
small supplementary charge based on additional time and mileage. Please contact us for details if this is
the preferred direction for your walk.
Southern Upland Way*
WalkingSupport is unable to offer a complete baggage transfer
service for those undertaking the whole Southern Upland Way, but we can link you to a provider that handles the western section
between Portpatrick and Beattock/Moffat. WalkingSupport will then be happy to provide you with the service from
Battock/Moffat to the eastern end at Cockburnspath.
The contractor handling the western half of the route is the
"Tourism Doctor" and you can
use this link to get contact
and service details.

Terms and Conditions
The item is defined as a single piece of luggage not exceeding 18kg. If the weight is exceeded Walking Support is entitled to charge a supplement.
The luggage needs to be available for collection in the morning by 9.15 am and we will have it delivered to the next address by 5.30 pm at latest, but we would hope that this could be in many cases much earlier.
The service operates between Easter and the end of September. Services outside this period will be considered dependent on demand.
The responsibility for insurance of the luggage in transit rests with the individual and not with the carrier. We therefore recommend that you do not include items of value or items that are easily damaged. Walking Support can advise you regarding low cost comprehensive holiday insurance that includes luggage protection.
Prices are as those shown on our website www.baggagetransfer.com at the time of placing the order.
In the case of large groups special rates can be quoted.
A deposit of 25% of the cost is required at the time of booking. This is non refundable. The balancing sum must be paid in advance of the start date or, with agreement with Walking Support, be available for collection with the bag/s at the first pick-up point.
To assist individuals making payment for any of our services we are able to accept cash, cheque, BACs payments (payable to SCSupport Ltd) or on-line card payment.
On the latter on-line transaction we require to apply a 3.9% transaction fee to cover our costs of such a money transfer. All payments are to be in £ (sterling) and where there is an international client with currency transfer costs these have to be carried by the payer along with any payer and payee bank charges.
Payment is through our registered trading business SCSupport Ltd and we will either issue you with an Invoice in advance of payment or a Receipt on receiving the payment. If you are going to pay by on-line card transaction a buy now button on the e-mail invoice will be included, simply click on this and follow the simple payment steps.
