A Walk on the Wildside

The I Would Walk 500 Miles event, backed by the Proclaimers, on September 15 will take place over three weeks. Participants will walk for 25 miles for six to seven hours a day until the full 500 miles have been walked at the end of the event. The march will start on September 15th at 12pm and end on October 6 in Edinburgh. The rally will start at Portree with SNP’s Westminster leader Ian Blackford launching the event.

Yes supporters will then walk to Ullapool, Inverness (September 18), Nairn, Elgin, Fraserburgh (September 22), Peterhead, Aberdeen, Forfar, Dundee, Scone, Stirling (September 30) and Glasgow (October 2). It is held on the same day as Hope Over Fear’s independence march in Glasgow so is expected to draw large crowds.

Dear iScot,

I was wondering about this 500 mile walk thing and the motivating force behind it. I have considered the impact of Scottish Independence on the UK long and hard, much of it from my former home in England. For me it is a no brainer but for others it is an absolute no-no. So I was wondering is there something else that makes people take to the streets and compels them to undertake a beautiful yet grueling walk across the North of Scotland singing ‘I would walk 500 miles?’ I know what it is for me and it comes down to survival.
