Route information

This is our second Oor Wullie running route. To go on a West End hunt, check out our other route. Between 17th June and 30th August 2019, Glasgow is one of the host cities for Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail. The trail aims to raise awareness and funds for Scotland’s children’s hospitals, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity, and the ARCHIE Foundation. You can find out more on the Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail website.

This 5 mile City Centre running route includes 24 of the 58 Wullies to collect. Add them to the Oor Wullies on the West End route and you’ll have collected 38 of them. You might need to venture off the main route at points to get your selfies, for example the Oor Wullie at St Enoch’s Subway is inside the station and that’s all the tips you’re getting from me. The route follows a loop so pick your starting point and keep an eye out at the places below:

  • Glasgow Caledonian University
  • Buchanan Galleries
  • Buchanan Street x4 (including Princes Square)
  • Hope Street
  • Glasgow Central Station
  • St Enoch Subway
  • St Enoch Centre
  • Argyle Street
  • Royal Exchange Square
  • George Square x3
  • John Street
  • Wilson Street (Merchant City)
  • Candleriggs
  • Glasgow Cross
  • Glasgow Green Play Park
  • People’s Palace, Glasgow Green
  • Bain Street
  • University of Strathclyde Campus (at new Sports Centre)
  • City of Glasgow College

You can find all the Wullies on this official map, now go get running!
