General Information

Food & Drink

All our Pit Stops dish out delicious ALDI Scotland snacks and provide water to keep you going throughout the walk. Your meal voucher is redeemable for a hot meal at the Food Marquee in the Kiltwalk Village. Mighty Stride walkers will also enjoy a light snack at Pit Stop 2. We encourage you to bring additional food supplies to see you through the day.


Keep Hydrated

It’s vitally important that you keep well hydrated. We recommend that you drink small amounts regularly, not just when you’re thirsty. Water is available at all Pit Stops.


Toilets

Walkers are expected to use the toilets provided across the route. All Pit Stops have toilets. Baby changing facilities are available in the accessible toilets located at all starts, Pit Stops and the Kiltwalk Village.


Entertainment

Our amazing charity and sponsor partners will be providing entertainment at Pit Stops, keeping you motivated and encouraging you throughout the journey. There may even be a few surprises along the way!


Foot & Muscle Care

Blisters are highly likely to appear on your feet at a Kiltwalk, especially on the longer walks. We suggest you carry a blister kit and don’t recommend wearing new shoes for the event as this could result in blisters and possible injuries. Try not to stop for too long at the Pit Stops as long breaks without moving or stretching can cause your muscles to seize.


Kiltie Volunteers

Our enthusiastic ’Kiltie’ volunteers will keep you motivated throughout the event. You’ll find them in their bright blue outfits and they are available to help you with anything you may need.


Pictures & Videos

Don’t forget to capture your Kiltwalk experience by taking lots of pictures and videos! Taking part in a Kiltwalk is a massive achievement so don’t keep it to yourself. Why not upload your pictures and videos to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram? Remember to tag @thekiltwalk and use the relevant event hashtag and include a link to your fundraising page.


Road Safety

It is very important to remember that the Kiltwalk does not have any right of way on roads. Please ensure that you use the Green Cross Code and stick to pavements on the official route. DO NOT walk on roads and please ensure you cross at appropriate crossing points and follow Kiltwalk signage at all times.


Luggage Storage

A free luggage storage facility will be available at all starting points. All bags will be shuttled to the Kiltwalk Village and will be waiting for you at the Info Point after you cross the finish line.


Dogs

We’re more than happy for your K9 companions to walk the route alongside you. We do ask however that all dogs are kept on a short leash and that you bring bags to clean up after your dog. Please note the Kiltwalk bus provider does not permit dogs to travel on their buses.


Alcohol/Smoking

With the exception of the bar at the Kiltwalk Village, alcohol is NOT permitted at any point along the route. Any walkers found under the influence of drugs or alcohol will be asked to leave the event. Smoking within any of the venues or structures is not permitted and should only be done within designated areas. If smoking on the route please respect other walkers’ preferences and hold onto cigarette butts until the nearest litter bin.


Lost Property

Lost property found along the route should be handed to Kiltwalk staff or a Kiltie. Lost property will be held at the Info Point at the Kiltwalk Village. Please allow until 9pm for items to make their way to this point. Unclaimed items will be handed to the local police station.


Waste

The Kiltwalk supports ‘Keep Scotland Beautiful’, and it is very important to us that the entire route be left in the best possible state. Please help us achieve this by ensuring all litter is put into bins across the route and venues.


Inviting Spectators

Spectators are encouraged to come along to the finish and help you celebrate crossing the line.


Emergencies

If you come across an emergency, please tell a member of Kiltwalk Staff and/or a Kiltie Volunteer. If one isn’t nearby contact our Control Room on 07342 626 393.


First Aid On The Route

Our First Aid volunteers will be positioned at each Pit Stop and on the route. First Aid will also be available in the Kiltwalk Village Medical Tent. If you need assistance and are not in sight of a first aider, staff member or Kiltie please call our First Aid line on 07464 059 571. Be sure to give them details about where you are on route so that they can get to you quickly.


Need Picked Up?

If you are struggling and need assistance, tell the nearest staff member or Kiltie. If one isn’t nearby please call our Course Pick-Up line on 07586 451 166 and a lift to the Kiltwalk Village will be arranged.


Lost Children

Lost children must be reported to a Kiltwalk staff member or Kiltie so that the appropriate procedures can be followed. Any found child will be reported to Police Scotland. If the child is found at a venue, they will be kept at the Info Point. If found on the route, the child will remain with a member of the Kiltwalk staff and Police Scotland will be informed.


Finish Line

After completing your Kiltwalk challenge, you will be greeted in true Kiltwalk fashion by our wonderful Kiltie volunteers standing ready to give you your Kiltwalk medal. Just follow the live music, enjoy your meal, grab a drink and if you still have energy, join us on the dance floor to dance the evening away! The Kiltwalk Village closes at 10pm.


First Aid

You will also find our first aiders at the finish line by the Medical Tent. If you feel unwell in any way after finishing the walk, please be sure to make yourself known to the medical team or call 07464 059 571.


Info Point and Luggage Collection

Staff and Kilties will be based at the Kiltwalk Village Info Point throughout the event. Please use this service for any lost property, collecting luggage and for any other queries you might have.


Massage
