Scotland's Finest (aka "My Personal Scotland") is, I think, a site with a difference. Having said that, I do realize that many a webmaster tends to think their approach is absolutely singular and unique. Scotland's Finest provides basic information on intriguing places to visit, scenic routes and walking trails that have captured my imagination.

Being a true scottophile and a fervent walker to boot, I'd like to share this harmless addiction 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 still has quite a way to go but I'm tickled that there is a steady rise in the number of visitors from around the globe. As I said before Idea's or suggestions are always welcome.

If you're interested in some background information "ME & WHY" will provide you with insights regarding this, predominantly personal, selection.

Once again: NEW is updated many, many times a month. Here you'll find the latest changes and additions.

To get you in the right mood: the underneath video from John Duncan is easily the best I've seen. It's a rather short, yet moving and breathtaking journey.

Enter full screen, turn up the volume and enjoy!
