Andy Murray calls on Scots to get involved in Kiltwalk

Tennis superstar Andy Murray has urged Scots to don their kilts and make Kiltwalk their goal for 2018.

The three-time Grand Slam champion, who is recovering from hip surgery, recorded a video message to encourage walkers to take part in this year's events.

For every £100 raised by a walker, The Hunter Foundation has promised to top it up by 40%, meaning each participant's chosen charity will receive £140.

In a video posted on YouTube, he said: "Why don't you get your kilt on for the Kiltwalk?

"Whatever money you raise, the Hunter Foundation will top it up by 40%, so get out there walking and raise lots of money. Good luck!"

The Royal Bank of Scotland Kiltwalk attracted 14,000 walkers in 2017 and their £2.5 million helped over 780 charities all over Scotland.

Organisers say the fundraising model makes the event "the most efficient" way to raise money for charity.
