Welsh comedian Rob Brydon has channelled Sir Sean Connery in a bid to urge Scots to take part in a major charity event.

The Kiltwalk will take place in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and from St Andrews to Dundee later this year.

It already has the backing of big-name Scots such as tennis star Andy Murray and Hollywood actor Gerard Butler.

Some of the money raised is distributed through the STV Children's Appeal, the official grant-making partner of the event.

In a recorded message, Brydon says: "Hello this is Sir Sean Connery looking strangely like the Welsh comedian Rob Brydon.

"I'm here to tell you about the Kiltwalk: you walk in a kilt for a charity of your choice. It could be five miles, it could be 13, it could be more. Whatever you raise for your charity The Hunter Foundation will top up by 40%."

The Kiltwalk, backed by Sir Tom Hunter, attracted 14,000 walkers in 2017 and raised £2.5m for nearly 800 charities across Scotland.

Paul Cooney, chief executive of the Royal Bank of Scotland Kiltwalk, said: "It's brilliant to have yet another high-profile individual showing their support.

"The Kiltwalk is a success because of the amazing people who take part in the event. With four walks scheduled across Scotland this year and three different lengths to choose from there's no excuse.

"Get your kilt on and get walking for Scotland's charities and help to make a real difference to the lives of people who need it the most."
