The November issue is out now. Inside we meet songwriter, composer and performer Dougie MacLean and learn about his love for his native Perthshire. Cameraman extraordinaire Keith Partridge talks making films in the world’s most hostile environs, ethical carnivore Louise Gray bags herself a pheasant, and we take to the moors with mounted hawkers to find out more about the age old sport of falconry. We learn about pioneering Scots photographer Alexander Gardner who was instrumental in documenting the American Civil War, and tell the story behind a series of special events which are seeing Scots reels danced around the world. There’s classic cars against stunning backdrops aplenty with photographs from the Concours of Elegance in Edinburgh, Guy Grieve teaches his sons the ways of the wilderness, and subscribers check out shooting breaks.
