Slanj Kilts has launched a brand-new Euros Tartan to raise funds for Scottish mental health charity Brothers in Arms

Many members of the Tartan Army will be heading to Germany for this year’s Euros, but only one will be kicking off their travels more than a month in advance...and on foot.

Glaswegian man Craig Ferguson will be clocking up more than 1,000 miles on his pedometer as he walks his way through six countries in aid of Brothers in Arms, a men’s mental health charity.

He will eventually reach Munich for the beginning of the football tournament, which opens with the Germany v Scotland game on 14th June, and his efforts are on track to raise over £10,000 for the worthwhile cause.

In true Scottish style, Craig will be sporting a kilt in a new check – the Euros tartan – created by Slanj Kilts. Each thread draws inspiration from the flags of Scotland’s Group A opponents – Germany, Switzerland, and Hungary – and is proudly set against the dark blue backdrop which echoes the iconic colours of the Scottish football strip.

The Euros tartan is available across many products such as a six-yard sports kilt (what Craig will be wearing on his journey) to the full eight-yard kilt, with Slanj donating 20% of every sale of it directly to Brothers in Arms.
