As nothing seems to be happening at Ordnance Survey, I'm reverting back to the 'old' URL's that still work.
Due to a very difficult personal (not COVID related!) situation, I can't spend much time on the web site. As I like pottering about with the site though, the flow of content will pick up in the next few days/weeks.

Ordnance Survey still seems to have problems getting the new URL's right for their shop. Still waiting for the updates.
Maybe you're wondering why so much attention to an URL-change? Well, if everything goes to plan you shouldn't have a problem getting the right map from their shop, but when you're using an OS-URL as published here with Scotland's Finest in the middel of a change over at OS, you may have a problem getting to their shop. When I get the new URL-set up in the mail I need to change the URL's here fast so you will experience no hick ups.
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.
8 July 2020
As of 14 July the URL's from the Ordnance Survey Maps will change.
Meaning: I will try to remedy that as soon as possible.

Although at first I really liked the animated banner, there was something irritating about it.

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!!!!!

A little later than expected but it's done! I love it!

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.

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.
