New issue: Issue 125 is now on sale

The new issue of Scotland is out now. We’ve packed it with historic tales, stories of Scottish heritage, age-old traditions and travel inspiration. Find out what’s inside here

Our November/December issue is here! This issue we pay tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as we trace her final journey through Scotland and our editor takes a private cruise around the Isle of Skye

The past couple of months have been a time of much sadness across Scotland, following the death of The Queen at her beloved Balmoral, and so we pay tribute to her in Scotland Says Goodbye by tracing her final journey through the country she so loved.

It’s also been a time of much change, and we now have a new King of Scots as well as a new Duke of Rothesay. You can read all about the shift in roles in Royal Titles.

Before the pivotal news, our editor managed to escape her desk and take a cruise in the Inner Hebrides, where she got up close to lots of Scottish wildlife and visited some of the places most impacted by the Highland Clearances. You can read about her coastal tour in The Isle of Skye: A private cruise here.

And, if you’re looking for some Scottish gifts this Christmas, take a little piece of Scotland home with you our round of up of these trusted Scottish brands. Read more in Scottish gifts: From Scotland with love. 

Plus, we’re offering you the chance to win a luxury escape to the Isle of Skye for you and a guest.
