In 2023, a record breaking 7,000 Edinburgh Kiltwalkers stepped out to support over 710 of their favourite charities in the biggest ever Kiltwalk in the Capital! What an achievement!
We’re delighted that four Kiltwalks are planned for 2024, in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh. We offer our supporters a free place when they fundraise for us in any of the Kiltwalk routes. You have a choice three routes in the Edinburgh Kiltwalk. It’s ideal for a group of colleagues, friends or family to take part in as a team. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, and you’ll be fundraising too!
The event is not timed, not a race, and walkers of all capabilities are welcomed. Dogs can join in with their owners! And…wearing your kilt or a touch of tartan with your Prostate Scotland t-shirt is all part of the experience!
