From 23 to 25 April, you can don your best tartan, walk on the wild side and become a conservation hero by taking part in Scotland’s Virtual Kiltwalk. Choose your own challenge and raise much-needed funds for the animals you love at Edinburgh Zoo and Highland Wildlife Park. The cherry on top? Any funds you do raise will be topped up by 50% by the Hunter Foundation, making an even bigger difference for your conservation charity.

The Kiltwalk normally host mass participation walking events that raise money for Scottish charities across our major cities. Luckily, the pandemic isn’t stopping the fun in 2021 and you can take part from your home or local area with your family bubble, following any current government guidance.

You can stay traditional and organise your own sponsored walk, or you can set your sights on a new challenge. How about going for a long run or cycle? Or skipping a mile in a kilt? Or dressing up as your favourite animal and dancing around your local area for the day? Whatever unique challenge you decide, make it your own and have fun while raising money for an important cause.

Registration fees are £12.80 per adult and £6.50 per child (under 5’s and any canine companions take part for free). What’s more, anyone who signs up will receive a finisher’s medal and certificate and be in with the chance of winning a car or electric bike from Kiltwalk’s headline sponsor, Arnold Clark!

If you’d like to rise to the challenge, sign up here.
