MORE FROM SCOTLAND MAGAZINE
In 2021 there is so much to look forward to, including the reopening of Scotland to visitors from all over the world. And while we wait for travel corridors to catch up with our exciting plans, we have plenty to keep you entertained in this issue of Scotland magazine.
In ‘Woven into the fabric’, we loved learning about the Outer Hebrides’ most famous export, Harris Tweed, and hearing from some of the skillful islanders involved in its creation today.
Talking of talent, we recently lost one of Scotland’s greatest stars, Sir Sean Connery. In ‘A life in film’, we celebrate some of his most memorable screen appearances and then discover, thanks to our resident genealogist, some fascinating family history through his mother’s line.
We also see the return of Kate Francis’s column on life in rural Scotland – the pandemic edition – plus we travel to Port Appin in Argyll and tour Beatrix Potter’s Perthshire. Enjoy!
Made only in the Outer Hebrides, Harris Tweed is a textile that evokes a strong sense of place. We meet the makers and go back in time to learn about the history of this internationally renowned fabric.
What began centuries ago as a practical and necessary means to sort stray sheep is now a red-letter date on the calendar for Scottish Borders farmers and visitors alike.
Children’s author Beatrix Potter was inspired by her childhood summer holidays in Perthshire. Come with us on a tour of favourite haunts.
