Join one of Scotland's fastest growing fundraising events and take on a marathon walk for Scotland's children, in association with The Sunday Post.

The Kiltwalk sees thousands of tartan-clad walkers taking on a one-day challenge event to raise money for the Kiltwalk's charity partners: Aberlour, CHAS, CLIC Sargent, Children 1st and Cash for Kids.

The flagship event is back, and it's going to be bigger and better than ever!

The Full Walk - 23 miles 

As Hampden Park is being developed for the Commonwealth Games, we start at the SECC on the North bank of the River Clyde. You will set off from two of Glasgow's most iconic landmarks - the Armadillo and the SSE Hydro, making a slightly shorter 23 miles.

Joined by a host of celebrities, you’ll be piped out, and along the way there will be plenty of refreshments and entertainment to keep you going!

Take in Kelvingrove Park, an emotional visit to Yorkhill Children's Hospital, along the canal from Clydebank, through Bowling Marina, onto Dumbarton and then follow the River Leven cycle path to Loch Lomond Shores.

The Half Walk - 13 miles

Still a massive achievement for most, the Half Walk sets off from the PlayDrome Clydebank with the same fanfare as the Full Walk - a host of bagpipes and your hosts, Clyde 2. We follow the same route as the main walk, following the canal to Bowling Marina, through Dumbarton and then along the River Leven cycle path to Loch Lomond Shores.

The Wee Walk - 6 miles (10K)

The Wee Walk, still a healthy challenge for those who take part, is perfect for those not ready for the longer walks, and it's perfect for families. 

Wee Walkers

The Wee Walk is a beautiful route, setting off from Loch Lomond Shores, doing two loops of Balloch Castle Country Park, and then back to Loch Lomond Shores for the same amazing finishing line atmosphere as the bigger walks.

Entertainment

In the evening, you can enjoy some delicious food and music with your fellow Kiltwalkers, provided by our generous supporters Clyde 2 Radio and the Greatest Hits Network.

The WoofWalk

So why not join us on this fantastic event…and, if you have a four-legged friend, why not bring them along too? 2013 saw the first ever WoofWalk, which meant dog owners could join in the KiltWalk. It was such a success, with lots of dogs - big and small - showing everyone that 26 miles was like a walk in the park! In 2014 we would love lots more furry friends to join us.

PetsFamilLogo CircleWe are delighted to have the WoofWalk in Glasgow sponsored by The Pets 'n' Vets Family, a small friendly partnership of local vets with surgeries in Glasgow, East Kilbride and Blantyre. For more info visit www.petsnvets.org.uk. Pets ‘n' Vets will be out and about at the Glasgow Kiltwalk, ensuring our four-legged friends are in tip top shape, and on hand in case any need a little TLC.
