Time to walk the talk in the Highlands

By Gavin Musgrove

Snappers in the strath are being encouraged to enter a portrait photography competition by sharing images and stories that capture what walking means to them.

Scotland’s walking charity Paths for All has launched the competition named Humans of the Walk as part of its mission to promote everyday walking.

Those who take part are in with the chance of winning a Nikon B500 Coolpix camera.

To enter the competition, members of the public should post a portrait photo celebrating walking in some way, on Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag #HumansOfTheWalk.

The competition is running until the end of this month to coincide with National Walking Month and multiple entries are allowed.

Ian Findlay, Paths for All chief, said: “The Highlands has a number of great walking routes – whether it’s residential streets or local paths and green spaces - and we’re keen for the community to celebrate how they make a part of their daily routines.

“We want the photos to be a true reflection of everyday walking – walking that builds friendships, gives you headspace and gets you feeling fitter and out enjoying nature.

“Walking can help prevent ill health, build communities and create a happier, healthier, greener Scotland and we know that people can demonstrate just that with their Humans of the Walk photos.

Paths for All’s aim is to significantly increase the number of people who choose to walk in Scotland, whether it’s walking for leisure or walking to work, school or to the shops.

Everyday walking refers to walking that’s regular, easy and local that can be part of daily routines and family life.
