Previous Big Noise Kiltwalkers have said...

"I was a bit nervous about signing up for the Mighty Stride, especially since I was the only one walking that distance for the Edinburgh walk and I worried I wouldn't feel a part of the day.  Honestly I had nothing to worry about: it was fantastic... I felt really proud of myself by the end and glad to have done something to support Big Noise that was outside of my day to day job."


"Absolutely do it! It was great fun, chatting and getting to know your colleagues and other walkers, we learned about some other fantastic charities, enjoyed the local scenery, there are also pit stops with support teams, live music, and delicious snacks to keep you going – it’s a great atmosphere! And even better you're raising money for Big Noise! Get a big team or small team together and go for it!"

"I loved doing the Dundee Kiltwalk in aid of Big Noise - it really was a fantastic day out. The event was superbly organised with a brilliant atmosphere and I felt so proud to be part of it and at the same time raising valuable funds for the Big Noise centres and spreading the word about their great work with their communities. It really encouraged me to get out and do lots of lovely long walks as advance training and on the day, time flew by as we chatted and laughed through the miles. Great fun!"
