We’re still looking for more suggestions for our walking inspired playlist. We’re looking for songs about walking and songs that make you want to get out and hit the streets for a stroll. Linda McDonald from Aberdeenshire Council suggested Nancy Sinatra’s These Boots Are Made for Walkin’ and sent us this recollection from her childhood.

These Boots Are Made for Walkin

“One of the songs on my MP3 is a very old song that was a hit in the mid 60s. I remember it was the first single my big brother ever bought and it was by Nancy Sinatra singing These Boots Are Made for Walkin’.

“We used to dance around the living room driving our mum and dad crazy as it was on morning, noon and night. To this day I really enjoy this song and it fills me with so many happy memories which just lifts my mood and increases my steps which is great for the present challenge.”

To enter, send us an email at with a note of the song that inspires you to get walking and a sentence on why you suggested it. Deadline for entries is 5pm Wednesday 22 May. Everyone who enters will be put forward for a prize draw to win one of the following:
