About This Website
Writing about Scotland has been a revelation. I was born in Scotland and have lived here all my life, but I was surprised by how rich the country is in history and culture.
This site was first built in 2007.
The original domain name (web address) had hyphens between the words.
Now, still going strong, I owe a debt of gratitude to the many visitors who have been instrumental in the growing popularity, and ultimately, the success of this website.
Over the years I’ve travelled the length and breadth of the country often enough to enable me to share my thoughts and experiences, and that was the purpose of this website. With a fascinating history, and diverse culture and traditions, Scotland has much to offer, and regular, repeat visitors from all over the world tend to agree.
Whether you are in the process of planning a visit to Scotland, or are just naturally curious about the country, I believe these pages will serve your purpose.
I have endeavoured to provide as much helpful information as possible for any of you who ARE planning a visit, and at the same time hopefully promoted the country in a way that may inspire some of you to make the decision to come here eventually.
These days I travel Scotland a lot, and I am always amazed by the natural beauty of the place. I have learnt to appreciate how much the country has to offer, and I now fully understand why we get so many overseas visitors returning here year after year.
So, I’ve dedicated this site to promote Scottish culture and history, outdoor activities, events and all things Scottish. It has been hard work in terms of the amount of hours I’ve put in, but when doing something you’re passionate about it’s most enjoyable.
No amount of words or pictures can fully describe the beauty of Scotland.
I just hope that maybe I have done enough with this site to catch your imagination, stirred your curiosity, and inspired some of you enough to want to visit my country.
I hope you get as much pleasure reading as I do writing.
Thanks for visiting the site,
