Scotland's Finest

Fascinating Scotland in all its rugged splendour.

Dirk Jelier


This 'work in progress' is, above all else, a love child. Please stay tuned and keep an eye on NEW!!

Latest change: 25 November 2020

1. Very busy with the Perthshire, Angus & Dundee region and making small changes to the lay out of the Long Distance Trails pages. These pages needed some doing as they had some issues when viewing them on a smartphone. At the same time added the 'visitable places' enroute, the stages and the Heritage Paths to the trail maps.

Scotland's Finest aka "My Personal Scotland" is, I think, a site with a difference. I do realize though that all of us 'scottonutties' think our approach is absolutely singular and unique. Anyway, this site provides basic information on intruiging places to visit, scenic routes and walking trails that have captured my imagination.

As a true scottophile and a fervent walker, I like to share this harmless addiction with others. Comments are 'relatively always' (= usually) appreciated, be they positive or (heaven forbid) negative.

Please, remember that Scotland's Finest has only appeared on the www in the autumn of 2019 and still has a way to go (a sheer challenge!!!!!). I'm thrilled that there is a steady rise in the number of visitors from around the globe that have found Scotland's Finest. Idea's or suggestions? Do let me know!

Why don't you take a look at "ABOUT THIS SITE" and "WHY THIS SITE". These pages will provide you with some 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: this great video (Ancient Scotland) from John Duncan is easily the best I've seen. It's a very moving and breathtaking journey. Enter full screen, turn up the volume and enjoy! (It's really a 5-star video!)
