Walkers are preparing to set off on a trek to support Scottish children's charities.

Around 3500 people are expected to take part in this year's Aberdeen Kiltwalk on Sunday.

The walk features three routes - 26, 15 or 8 miles - with sponsorship money going to charities chosen by the walkers themselves.

One of the charities set to benefit is the STV Children's appeal, and weather presenter Sean Batty, who forecast sunny weather for Sunday's event.

Sean said: "For the STV Children's Appeal this year I've decided to take part in all of their big partner events - The Great Edinburgh Run, four Kiltwalks and the Pedal for Scotland.

"This Sunday it's the Aberdeen Kiltwalk, and the weather is looking good for it.

"It could be quite chilly with cloudy and misty conditions early on, but this should clear away to allow for plenty of sunshine as the day goes on.

"The highest temperatures will be in the west of the country, like they have been for the last week or so. Despite this we shouldn't do too bad in Aberdeenshire, with temperatures reaching the high teens during the afternoon. It will actually feel a lot warmer than this as the wind will be light, and of course the sunshine at this time of year is very strong.

The UV levels are now about as high as they can go in Scotland, so make sure you put on plenty of high factor suntan lotion. The chance of sunburn will be very high.

"Walkers should also make sure they are adequately hydrated before and during the event. It might also be a good idea to make sure you've got some midge repellent with you, as they'll be loving the weather too."
