Edinburgh Kiltwalk

The Kiltwalk is one of the most well known fundraising events in Scotland. From 2017 onwards anyone can use the Kiltwalk to fundraise for their favourite charity so pick Poppyscotland and fundraise for our Armed Forces Community. With walks throughout Scotland and throughout the year, there is no better time to strap on your kilt and raise money for our Armed Forces Community.

The Date: 17th September 2017

The Distances:

  • The Mighty Stride – 26 miles
  • The Big Stroll – 12 miles
  • The Wee Wander – 5 miles

The Route:

Each Kiltwalk takes different routes through the location city showing off the best that city has to offer and the surrounding countryside.

How much sponsorship do I have to raise?

This year we are asking people to raise £200 for our Armed Forces Community. The money you raise could change the life of a veteran by providing immediate need grant so a family doesn’t lose their home.
