Fascinating Scotland in all its haunting and rugged splendour

THIS is a site with a difference and I'd love to know what you're interested in! Why this particular walk? Why this part of Scotland? How do you experience this site? Enquiries? Yes, please! Use the contact page! Maybe I can help you find answers.

In short...talk to me! Help me create a 'better' or 'more rounded' and fulfilling Scotland's Finest.

Latest update: Two more routes have been added to Some Lesser Known Great Walks More to follow shortly!

Scotland's Finest (aka "My Very, Very Personal Scotland") really IS a site with a difference providing basic information on intriguing places to visit, scenic routes and walking trails that have, one way or another, captured my imagination. Therefore this is a very personal site and I'm certainly aware of that. Nevertheless I hope you enjoy it all the same. As a true scotophile and a fervent walker to boot, I'd like to share this harmless addiction (harmless but full blown!) with you.

Comments are 'relatively always' (= usually) appreciated, be they positive or, heaven forbid, negative.

Scotland's Finest has only appeared on the www in the autumn of 2019 and, I admit, still has a long way to go. I'm tickled though with the steady rise in visitors numbers from around the globe.

Some background information? Read "ME & WHY". As Dutch is my mother (father) tongue, there will undoubtedly be mistakes in spelling and grammar. Serious mistakes? Do let me know!
