Previous issue: Issue 109 is on sale

Scotland is a travel magazine that covers history, traditions and clans too. It’s your last chance to get your hands on our previous issue. Here’s what’s inside

Welcome to issue 109 of Scotland, where we’re getting excited about the longer days that spring brings and are eager to make the most of them.

Scotland is synonymous with golf, so if you like to fit in a few rounds on your travels, or indeed if that’s the main reason you come to Scotland, then you’ll want to read this issue, where we feature some of the best golfing hotels in the country. There’s also something for the literature lovers in the form of a trip to Robert Burns country, and some hefty history pieces, one of which celebrates the monumental 700th anniversary of the Declaration of Arbroath.

We were also delighted this issue to be invited into Inveraray Castle, the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll, to hear about what life is really like inside a stately home. The resulting piece makes for riveting reading.

When we think of spring, we think of new life and nature, and so we think you’ll enjoy reading Marie Harrison’s piece on the changing face of Scotland’s landscape and how rewilding is being applied in some places to encourage wildlife back.

We investigate which Scottish clans threw their support behind Bonnie Prince Charlie and his Jacobites, and – more importantly – which didn’t.
