Craig's top ten
Over my many years of exploring Scotland I have discovered many unique and special places - from great wee traditional pubs and great restaurants to secluded beaches and country walks. This "top ten" is just really the tip of the iceberg. I have had lots of help compiling this list from friends, family and clients. In some way I'm giving away the trade secrets!

This list will be continually added to and one day feature in that book I've always meant to write about Scotland! Some of the below will be well known already but others are listed because of the very few visitors that actually reach them I'm more than happy to take you to any of these places on tour.
