The hugely popular Kiltwalk event returns for a 9th year and we would love for you to be a part of our team, whilst exploring iconic cities and countryside views of Scotland.

Take on the Aberdeen Kiltwalk with friends and family on June 2nd!

Our local Kiltwalk offers two different challenges for you to choose from. Take on the Mighty Stride (18 miles) with the tartan trail starting in the beautiful Duthie Park, follow the route out towards Deeside where you will be joined by those taking on the Wee Wander (4 miles) at Crathes. 

All routes finish in Bellfield Park in Banchory. Remember dogs are welcome too! 

Sign up today!
