The Kiltwalk

Due to government guidelines surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, 2020's Kiltwalk events have been cancelled. However, there's still time to take part in the Virtual Kiltwalk Edinburgh event - click here for more details.

Choose to fundraise for Scottish Autism by participating in the Kiltwalk near you. Every penny raised by participating walkers goes straight to their charity of choice.

The Kiltwalk will also top up the money you raise for Scottish Autism by a whopping 50%, meaning that your fundraising goes that bit further to enable autistic people to lead happy, healthy and fulfilling lives.

You can choose a location from Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee or Edinburgh. You then choose your distance from The Wee Wander at 6 miles, The Big Stroll at 11 miles or The Mighty Stride at 25 miles.

*UPDATE: The Hunter Foundation have pledged that all funds raised in the next few weeks for these postponed events will be matched by 50% and paid quickly to your charity of choice.

You don't have to take on the entire route yourself (although you can if you want) - you can trek an individual segment, or perhaps to get together with family, friends or colleagues to walk the route as a team relay. It's your choice!
