Dundee KiltWalk

August 2023

Neurosciences Foundation Trustee Phil Taylor enjoyed the Dundee “Wee Wander”, the shorter of the two city events covering a beautiful 4.3-mile
route from Broughty Ferry along the banks of the silvery Tay to Dundee.
Braver souls undertook the “Mighty Stride”, stretching 20 miles from St Andrews to the City of Discovery.


Kiltwalk is Scotland’s largest mass participation walking event with over
120,000 people taking part since 2016. This year’s Dundee event was the
biggest ever with more than 3,700 walkers taking part.
Phil said: “Many of my friends have taken part on the Scottish Kiltwalks.
This was my first experience and I wish I’d been involved earlier. It is
extraordinarily moving to see so many folks having a fun day out with
friends and family and raising money for their own good causes.

“I’m now looking forward to the Neurosciences Foundation’s own walking
fundraiser which takes place in October with Team Neurotics strolling from
North Queensferry to Edinburgh.”

The Neurosciences Foundation is one of 470 charities being supported by the
Dundee event alone. And don’t forget big Kiltwalk events take place in
Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen.

The kind-hearted Kiltwalk community have taken big strides for charities
close to their hearts and managed to raise £24.6 million to date. Sir Tom
Hunter and The Hunter Foundation have topped this up with £12.5 million
meaning a staggering collective £37 million has been raised and paid-out to
3,000 Scottish Charities.
