The May issue of Scottish Field is out now – inside enjoy a fantastic interview with author Peter May. We caught up with Peter on Lewis, the island that have provided him with the inspiration for television programmes and his internationally acclaimed Lewis trilogy – The Blackhouse, The Lewis Man and The Chessmen. We also meet comedian Rory Bremnar who, these days, if he is not starring in plays or translating operas, is fascinated by the independence referendum. Richard Bath headed down to the Borders this month to talk to the Duke of Roxburghe, owner of the famous Upper Floors beat on the Tweed and find out why he considers himself the most fortunate angler on the planet. You can also read the amazing tale of perhaps one of the cleverest Scots you have never heard of before – find out why James Clerk Maxwell’s legacy as a genius physicist ranks him alongside the likes of Albert Einstein and Sir Isaac Newton.
