Fascinating Scotland in all its rugged splendour

Dirk Jelier

I am very, very interested in 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:

In a few weeks time there will be a new blog from the one and only Marta Pereira. She'll provide a journal on her 'expedition' along the Mary, Queen of Scots Way. Scotland's Finest was of some assistance organizing the walk so of course I'd love to read about her experiences. In the meantime you might check out an earlier blog. This-one of a kind-lady is a true sculptor of words and creates images that are not only poetic but vivid as well.


Scotland's Finest (aka "My Very, Very Personal Scotland") is, I honestly think, a site with a difference. It provides basic information on intriguing places to visit, scenic routes and walking trails that have, one way or another, captured my imagination. This is also a very personal site, I'm certainly aware of that but 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? The "ME & WHY" will provide you with insights regarding this, predominantly, personal selection.

As Dutch is my mother (father) tongue, there will undoubtedly be mistakes in spelling and grammar. Serious mistakes? Do let me know!
