A brown leather hicking bootDo you have a pair of old boots that are fit for the bin after one too many long walks in the great outdoors? Do you want to do your bit for the National Trust for Scotland?

The trust will be using 90 pairs of old walking boots to create an advertising board in Edinburgh, encouraging commuters to support the National Trust for Scotland’s countryside campaign.

Campaign Manager, Amy Gunn said:

“We want your old boots to help us spread the message about our mountain and countryside work. Instead of binning your boots, send them to the Trust, freepost and play your part in helping to conserve some of Scotland’s most iconic mountain landscapes, including Glencoe, Torridon and Goatfell.”

If you’d like to send your boots to the trust to be part of the campaign, the freepost address is:

National Trust for Scotland
5 Cultins Road
EH11 4DF

Anyone who donates their old boots to the campaign will receive a thank you on and a credit in a short film that will be made of the billboard’s installation.
