MORE FROM SCOTLAND MAGAZINE
Welcome to the new issue of Scotland magazine! As we are well aware, Scotland is renowned as much for its lochs and glens, towering munros and fertile forests, as it is for its tales of outlanders and heroic clans. For a taste of all of the above, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, where the Lowlands meet the Highlands, is the place to go, and this issue we explore the western shores of its namesake loch a little closer in On the Bonnie, Bonnie Banks.
Scotland is also renown for its pageantry, and this issue we spoke to the Lord Lyon, head of the regulatory body of Scottish heraldry, to try to get a better understanding of it all in Pomp with a Point.
We celebrate the Scottish tradition of making Highland sporrans, as writer and photographer, Jeremy Flint, met a maker who is keeping this handmade craft alive in The perfect pouch.
And, in Scotland’s Year of Stories, we investigate whether Highlander James Macpherson was really the fraudster he was made out to be, or just a very good storyteller, in Hoaxer or hero?
Plus, enter our competition to win a Great British Holiday worth up to £5,000, including a night in a boutique hotel in Edinburgh and tickets to Edinburgh Castle.
