We’re excited to be taking part in the virtual Kiltwalk weekend again, which runs from 23-25th April! Last year, our team of intrepid walkers raised over £5k, which was so generously doubled by The Hunter Foundation, providing Love Music with a much needed financial boost during the height of the pandemic’s uncertainty. This year, The Hunter Foundation has committed to top up all donations by 50%.
Once again, as a virtual walk, there won’t be a specific location, start time or required distance, and you can undertake any physical activity you like – running, walking, cycling, wheeling, skipping, dancing, hopping, jumping! You might like to do your regular dog walk route, or if you use a location tracking app like Strava you might like to draw some musical shapes, perhaps taking inspiration from this crocodile!
If you can’t walk with us, please consider making a donation

How to take part – 23rd to 25th April
We’d be delighted if you’d like to join our team, and help us to raise some sponsorship for Love Music. The event registration costs are: £12.80 per Adult / £6.50 per Child. The registration fees go to Kiltwalk to cover their admin, but any money raised by you after that goes to Love Music (and is topped up by 50% by The Hunter Foundation!).
If you’d like to take part but can’t afford the registration cost, please get in touch and we’ll provide you with a free place: firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you register, choose “Love Music Productions” from the charity list and join our team “Love Music” so everyone can see our combined fundraising progress.Register to take part in the Kiltwalk
Walk our Treble Clef route
We’ve created a route for a giant treble clef across Edinburgh. We’ve split it into several segments – if you’d like to walk or run part of it, we can send you PDFs with step-by-step details to use as your guide. If you use a device that runs Google Maps and want to have interactive instructions, we can email you a GPX file to use. You can see the full map below, view the Google Map here or view the map on On The Go Map here.
The overall route is 25.3km, taking in Inverleith, Stockbridge, Polwarth, Marchmont, Morningside, Buckstone and Oxgangs. As social distancing restrictions are likely still to be in force, the idea is that lots of individuals walk a part of the route that is most local to them at some point over the weekend. If you let us know which part you walked, we’ll share our progress over the weekend on our social media channels!
Please ensure that you are up to date with all government guidelines regarding what social distancing rules apply on the weekend of the walk – including use of public transport, travelling between different local authorities, and meeting with other people. The beauty of a virtual event like this is that you can plan a safe route local to where you live, and walk any distance you like.
