Kiltwalk Edinburgh


Are you ready to don your tartan and be part of something spectacular?

On Sunday 16th September, set off from Murrayfield Stadium, the home of Scottish Rugby and tackle either the Mighty Stride, Big Stroll or the Wee Wander to take in the best sights Edinburgh has to offer.

Wee Wander Logo
Approx. 6 miles— Perfect for all the family or those unable to complete a bigger challenge. Takes on average 2—3 hours to complete.  

Big Stroll Logo
Approx. 13 miles— an intermediate challenge suitable for most fitness levels, ideal for a fun day out with a group of colleagues or friends. Takes on average 4-6 hours to complete. 

Mighty Stride Logo
Approx. 26 miles— The Biggest Kiltwalk challenge! For people looking for the ultimate Kiltwalk experience. Training is essential! Takes on average 6-10 hours to complete. 

Anybody can take part in the Kiltwalk, no matter your fitness level! And the best part – dogs are welcome!

Choosing to walk for Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home means that we will receive 100% of the funds you raise plus a very generous 40% top up thanks to the Hunter Foundation.

We've taken big steps on the kiltwalk
Samantha, who walked for the Home in 2017, said, "Seeing the sea of everyone's charity t-shirts throughout the walk and having the chance to chat to people about their motivations really made the event a stand out for me. Being in the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home's bright green top meant that my other team members were easy to spot (and the fact most of them had a dog with them!). It was a great day, I can't recommend it enough."
