IN PICTURES: Glasgow Kiltwalkers back Bute charity

More than four hundred people, from Bute and far beyond, raised money for island charity Calum’s Cabin in the Glasgow Kiltwalk on Sunday.

The annual charity event, this year covering a 26-mile course from Hampden Park to Loch Lomond, attracted thousands of participants from all over Scotland, all of them united in the aim of supporting some of the country’s most worthwhile charities.

Michelle Standaloft, John Lawson, Iona Allan, Laura Keith and Hazel Robertson were among the Bute Calum's Cabin fund-raisers in the Glasgow Kiltwalk on Sunday, April 12, 2015.

Calum’s Cabin - founded in 2007 to give families with seriously ill children the chance to enjoy a short break amid the peace and beautiful scenery of the island - had welcoming areas at Hampden, Clydebank and Balloch, as well as a pit stop at Dumbarton, on the bank of the River Leven, giving participants a chance to draw breath and enjoy hospitality, words of encouragement and even entertainment from local singer and Rohtesay Academy pupil Beth Swan.
