The September issue is out now

The September issue is out now. Inspired by the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design, we spoke to ten experts in each of these creative spheres throughout Scotland about the inspiration they take from their surroundings in this year’s Autumn Breaks feature. We met Rio-bound Paralympian Samantha Kinghorn, explored interior designer Margot Paton’s beautiful Glasgow home and Madeleine Tinson’s colourful collection of lilies in her Perthshire garden. This month also includes the final instalment of our exclusive David Cameron’s Scottish connection series and an insight into the Scottish great white hunter who sparked a Victorian craze for African big game hunting. We take a look at David Haetzman’s restaurant Firebrick Brasserie in Lauder, where local produce is key, and review the fine country house cuisine at Meldrum House.
