HOLLYWOOD superstar Gerard Butler urged fellow Scots to sign up for this year’s Kiltwalk.

The April 29 walk will begin at Glasgow Green before all participants make their way over the 23-mile distance that will conclude in Balloch.

And Paisley-born Den of Thieves star Butler is hopeful that his countrymen and women will be out in their numbers to support the cause.

Last year more than 14,000 Scots took part in the Kiltwalk, raising over £2.5 million for over 780 charities across Scotland. And The Hunter Foundation have agreed to pledge an extra 40 per cent for every penny raised – meaning for every £100 raised by a walker a charity of their choice will receive £140.

Paul Cooney, chief executive of the Royal Bank of Scotland Kiltwalk, said: “We’re thrilled that the Kiltwalk excitement has spread to Hollywood once again!

“We want the 2018 Kiltwalk to be bigger than ever before, raising even more money for Scotland’s charities. We urge you to sign up for one of the four Kiltwalks taking place this year in Glasgow, Aberdeen, St Andrews to Dundee and Edinburgh.”

Walkers can choose between completing the whole nine yards, otherwise known as the full 23-mile Mighty Stride, the Big Stroll at 14-miles or the six-mile Wee Wander. So there’s plenty of options for all ages.

If you are unable to make the walk from Glasgow Green to Balloch, other walks include Aberdeen on June 3, St Andrews to Dundee on August 19 and Edinburgh on September 16. Each walk similarly has three distances to choose from.
