NEW(S) as from February 1rst 2020
What changed or was added (What?)
Extra information (Why)
26 September 2020
Added a new blog
A blog on the quandary I find myself in whether to promote or keep 'finds' to myself!
3 September 2020
- Added a more in-depth section on the Vikings in History.
- An overview of 'all' the Long Distance Walks is to be found at the bottom of the LDW-page. Due to the limitations set by Google the Scottish National Trail, the Cross Borders Drove Road, the Deeside Way and the trails from the Way of St Andrews can only be found on their respective pages.
Reading the History page from the start I noticed there was hardly any information on the somewhat troubled 'relationship' between Scots and Vikings. That has been remedied.
1 September 2020
All the trails now have downloadable GPX-files.
These files are of major importance as you might want to import them in your own mapping software.
28 August 2020
Added "The Way of St Andrews" (4 separate routes) as Long Distance Trails. Also added the Cross Borders Drove Road and the Deeside Way.
These are the last trails that will be added....for now.
23 August 2020
The Long Distance Trails are all done (for now). It's about time I start out again on opening up a few more regions and new entries.
I have a few more Ideas about the walks but that will have to wait. Problem is I can't find the gpx-files from the Heritage Paths. Would love to put these on the map as well.
16 August 2020
Have started out adding better maps to the individual Long Distance Walks pages. The Affric Kintail Way is the first.
Although not perfect, these new maps are better than the old 'home grown' maps.
13 August 2020
A video made by one of their guests. Well done.
11 August 2020
Almost all the links to the OS maps are finally back in working order.
Found a link that does not work? Let me know!
I can't spend much time on the website at the moment, but the flow of content will pick up in the next few days/weeks. There are still a few regions to go. Found also new interesting places to visit that must be included.
20 July 2020
Added a deeply moving video to the home page
I've not seen and experienced such a stunning video in a long time. You will love it!
15 July 2020
The URL change with regard to the Ordnance Survey maps has been postponed to the 23 of July. Untill then the present URL's should work.
Although the site's visitor shouldn't notice anything, I promise to keep an eye on this administrative "hassle".
10 July 2020
The small maps on the different "entry pages" are being moved to the top right corner in order to bring these pages in line with the Long Distance Trails pages.
As I said; To bring these pages in line.

3 June 2020
Edward I gave it another go, but his successors failed in the end.
31 May 2020
Although at first I really liked the animated banner, there was something irritating about it.
20 May 2020
Added buttons (bottom of the pages) to share on your social media.
Makes it a lot easier for viewers to....share.
18 May 2020
In truth there is nothing NEW to report
Simply to let you know that this is a sort of sabbatical. There are so many other 'things' going on that my priorities have changed for now. This is temporary! I will be back shortly!!!!!
1 May 2020
A little later than expected but it's done! I love it!
27 April 2020
Just adds a nice touch.
25 April 2020
Playing with the Idea of an animated banner on the Home page.
Looking at https://cameronmcneish.wixsite.com/cameronmcneish/bio I thought it would be nice to have a somewhat similar animated banner on this site. Still not really happy with the one I have right now. Hope to change that in the near future.
19 April 2020
Visiting stunning Rosslyn Chapel.
18 April 2020
The separate page on the rulers of early Scotland has been deleted. The info has been incorporated in the History page.
13 April 2020
A personal tour of Traquair House.
5 April 2020
Added a video of a very moving song performed by Karin Matheson (Capercaille): "Crucán na bPáiste" on the Home page.
3 April 2020
VisitScotland has produced a dedicated video "Absence makes the heart grow fonder". See the Home page.
A virtual hug to fans of Scotland, near and far, with a heart-warming film asking them to dream about visiting now, but to travel later.

Our Scotland expert "on site" has provided a short blog to be published on Scotland's Finest.
19 March 2020
I will try to write a new blog every 2 or 3 weeks.
15 March 2020
Adding more substance to published items.
Although the next region is about halfway done, I've decided to add some more substance to the entries allready published, first.
I found myself being less and less happy with these published entries, as quite a lot of them did not have enough 'flesh' on their bones.
I might have started all this because personally it gives me a lot of fun, but on the other hand, the 'dot on the horizon' (an attractive and, above all, informative website) should be what I'm aiming for. Just bear with me.
6 March 2020
Twentyfour entries added.
24 February 2020
Sixteen entries added.
24 February 2020
Presentation of this page on the smartphone was awful. Hopefully fixed now.
22 February 2020
These paths connect the different Long Distance Walking Trails. They're a welcome addition!
20 February 2020
A great route to try out next time you are near Roybridge.
15 February 2020
Forty interesting entries added.
10 February 2020
Details on the "Heritage Paths" will be added in the forthcoming months,
10 February 2020
Solved a few issues and, although not all regions are 'done' yet, there is enough content to 'go public'.

Hope to finish Argyll & The Isles within a few days!
