Scotland's Finest

Fascinating Scotland in all its rugged splendour

Dirk Jelier


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

Latest update: 5 October 2022: The interactive Heritage Path Map has issues! I contacted Scotways.

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, one way or another, captured my imagination.

As 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 a long way to go, but I'm tickled with the steady rise in visitors numbers  from around the globe.

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

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

As Dutch is my mother (father) tongue, I do apologise for any mistakes in spelling and grammar. Serious mistakes? Please, let me know!

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, sit back and enjoy!
