Sunday the 17th September saw our intrepid hikers take on the final Kiltwalk of the year around the highways and byways of Edinburgh.

It brought to a close another incredible year of these incredible events.

Back in April we kicked of the season in style, with our fundraisers taking on the Glasgow rains (our sun visors quickly became rain shields!) alongside 14,000 walkers raising money for 856 charities. This was followed by Aberdeen on the 4th June and Dundee on the 20th August, where luckily the weather perked up (a bit!!). Each city has it’s own charms and challenges but the unifying theme is thousands of smiling faces bedecked in tartan all proudly sporting the logos of their chosen charities. All sorts of folk, doing it for all sorts of reasons all brought together under the Kiltwalk banner.

We are eternally grateful to all our members, volunteers, staff and supporters for giving their time and effort for this cause. Obviously, the money fundraised is an important part of these events but not the only reason to take part. Getting out, meeting folk and raising the profile and recognition of our small charity. We’ve had numerous conversations with people along the walk that hadn’t come across the charity before and have subsequently signed up for membership or recommended a friend or family member to do so. The bigger the reach, the more people we can help!

‘This is my second year of taking part in the kiltwalk and wouldn’t miss it for the world. Its more about the people you meet and the laughs to be had. I’m comparing myself to the last year and see the change and also in others. They are more confident, and they are happier in lots of different ways. You all inspire me everyday and I’m sure my wee dog loves it too!

- Maureen Morrison, CEO Spinal Injuries Scotland

All in all we’ve had another storming Kiltwalk year raising £6806 across the four events with 30 Kiltwalk Heroes stepping up to the challenge, some of them taking on several different cities

We salute you!
