The August issue is out now. Inside we meet Game of Thrones star Clive Russell who talks acting, golf and seaside living. Often cast as a warrior thanks to his imposing physique, the actor feels closest to nature on the beaches of his home in Fife. Katie Morag writer Mairi Hedderwick talks about Coll, dreams and the 1920s nurse who inspired her to be a better woman, and renowned landscape artist Charles Jencks takes us on a tour of his 55-acre Crawick Multiverse scheme in Dumfries and Galloway. We also meet Alistair Moore, the man who engineered a remarkable forgotten tunnel under the Forth of the Forth which connected Edinburgh and Fife in the 1960s, and we get a glimpse into the stunning collections held by the National Galleries of Scotland. Scotland’s distilleries have started to make a real effort to welcome visitors, but Blair Bowman says there is still scope to go much further, we help you with 100 of the best places to take kids this summer and Scottish Field subscribers try out some of the country’s fabulous dog-friendly holiday homes and hotels.
