The December issue is out now. Inside we meet legendary eventer Ian Stark who talks about his distinguished career in the saddle and tells us why his heart lies in the Borders. We take a look at a series of stunning wintry Highland images taken by the multi-talented surgeon and snapper Nadir Khan and we learn the incredible tale of how the Countess of Rothes survived the Titanic. We say a fitting farewell to the old workhorse that is the Land Rover Defender by putting the Scotsman’s best friend on test in a watery playground, and discover the history of Wynd House in Elie, which has been in the setting for Wood family Chirstmases for over 400 years. Ethical carnivore Louise Gray is on the trail of a turkey for the Christmas table, we discover the joys and pitfalls of casting from a kayak and subscribers check out the perfect places to take a festive shopping break.
