Swan on nest

While doing the classic lunchtime loch walk, Lucy Anscombe took this lovely photo of our Stirling swans nurturing the next generation . (If the Stirling swans were allowed to submit their miles gliding round the loch we would be there by now.)

Sheep on Pentland Hills

Matt Francis had an encounter with some sheep on the Pentland Hills and had to beat a hasty retreat by vaulting over a fence (there is a sinister hard-stare look about them).

Catherine Kerr and her functional circuit friends rack up the miles for Walk to the Moon at one of the Sports Hall exercise classes.

Deer grazing with castle ruin and coastal scenery in background

Duncan Lean wanted to know if his ceilidh party dancing counted (dancing to the moon is most definitely allowed) but also enjoyed a quieter moment watching the deer at Lochranza, Arran.

Old market arcade in Ludlow

Alex Cochrane went wandering round some south Shropshire countryside during some wild storms. This is Ludlow - often described as the loveliest town in England. (Photo borrowed from Wikipedia because he accidentally deleted his).

Person standing on Great Wall of China

Lucy Andrew contributed a whole load of miles walking the Great Wall of China. It's a bit of a myth that the Wall is visible from space as you can only see it under very favourable conditions.

Loch, hills and University of Stirling campus

The classic campus view from David Telford who emphasised how much walking can help with mental health and wellbeing.

Two people posing in a Chinese botanic garden

Nigel Willby caught up with former PhD student Junyao Sun (now at Chinese Academy of Sciences) and added some miles with a walk round the Wuhan Botanic Gardens.

Thanks to all those who allowed us to use their images. Find out more about the Walk to the Moon project.
