Route description

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.

There are 58 Wullie’s to collect, although you’ll need to venture a wee bit further outside of Glasgow to get them all.
