Overview

Join a Kiltwalk adventure in the capital!

Sign up and have the best day raising vital funds for a charity close to your heart.

Three walk lengths are available:

  • Mighty Stride (approx. 21 miles)
  • Big Stroll (approx. 11 miles)
  • Wee Wander (approx. 5 miles)

Thanks to The Hunter Foundation subsidising registration fees, the lowest-ever entry prices have been locked for another year.

All funds you raise go quickly and directly to your chosen charity plus all eligible gift aid (up to 25%* extra). This means that up to 125%* of all funds you raise go to the charity close to your heart - it really is the best way to fundraise. This is made possible thanks to The Hunter Foundation and Kiltwalk sponsors.

Thanks to the amazing Kiltwalk heroes in 2023, Kiltwalk raised over £5.1 million for 1,550 Scottish Charities. Thank you all for your incredible Kiltwalk Kindness.

This event is part of The Kiltwalk Edinburgh.

Thanks to being underwritten by The Hunter Foundation, 150% of all funds raised through the Kiltwalk go to the Scottish Charities you care about.

Scotland’s legendary Kiltwalk Kindness has raised a remarkable £8.4 million for 1,270 charities across the country in 2021 after 15,500 heroes put on a bit of tartan and took part in events.

Kiltwalk started out putting our best feet forward for Scotland’s bravest children and have grown to support all kinds of charities from all over Scotland.

JustGiving is the Kiltwalk’s recommended online fundraising platform. Online fundraising is collected automatically and is the quickest and easiest way to raise funds with the Kiltwalk.

The fundraising model

The model has been designed to maximise your fundraising efforts whilst making the Kiltwalk a sustainable platform for fundraising in Scotland. All money raised by Kiltwalkers must come through the Kiltwalk before it is paid out to your charity as this is the only way accurate figures can be gathered on how much has collectively been raised, which is vital in order to add the 50% top-up. This also allows any eligible Gift Aid to be gathered.

The Kiltwalk retains Gift Aid in order to make the platform sustainable and guarantee that 150% of fundraising can go to your chosen charity.

The Hunter FoUndation

Sir Tom Hunter is a seasoned entrepreneur and philanthropist. Tom made his first fortune when he sold the sports retail chain he built up from scratch, Sports Division, for £290m in 1998.

He set up his private equity business, West Coast Capital in 2001 and combined this opportunity with a significant commitment to philanthropy, having invested in excess of £50m to date into social causes through The Hunter Foundation.

Tom sits on the Presidential Advisory Council for President Paul Kagame of Rwanda. Tom was knighted in 2005 for services to entrepreneurship and philanthropy and was awarded the prestigious Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy in 2013.
