Melsetter House on the island of Hoy in Orkney is an example of Arts and Crafts architecture at its very best. Designed by William Richard Lethaby for clients sensitive to the history and magic of the Orkney islands, it was built at least partly with the intention of providing work for local people in the skilled trades. It was constructed of local materials and decorated with symbols full of meaning, which give every visit a new sense of discovery and pleasure at the beauty of the architecture in its setting.

Torness Power Station, East Lothian. Whatever one's view on nuclear power, this is a magnificently successful assemblage of industrial buildings which has an architectural purity of rectangular form ideally adapted to location. Whether seen from the road, the railway or the sea this complex always has a striking and uplifting presence, whatever the weather or time of day -- though the evening sun can bestow a particular magic. An outstanding achievement and probably Scotland's best building from the 1980s?

The waters off the west coast of Harris which are the most amazing shades of turquoise, jade and all tints of blues and greens. Everyone should see this before they die!

Lamlash Bay (Arran) as seen from the Brodick Road. I have special memories of this when arriving there on holiday each year as a child.

the back shore, Findhorn, Moray - the most beautiful beach on God's earth, winter and summer, high and low tides. It washes your soul with each wave.
