The July 2019 edition of Scottish Field is now available

The July edition of Scottish Field is now available – and we celebrate the fantastic diversity of Perthshire.

With the summer having arrived, it’s time to head for the hills as we recommend some beautiful Perthshire walks.

We also discover that a lost art is being revived in the area, as Rob and Gabrielle Clamp, who run Perthshire-based company Birken Tree, are trying to put birch water back on the drinks menu.

In our monthly profile of a famous Scot, we look at the BBC’s political editor, and discover how Laura Kuenssberg has bagged ‘the best job in journalism’.

We also meet another Scot who is living life in the fast lane, as we catch up – briefly, before she speeds off! – with Oban’s racing driver Susie Wolff.

Farmer Jim Smith takes to the stage for his stand-up tour, and tells us about tattie picking and making people laugh.

It’s not just current Scots we profile, as we turn back the clock and discover the rags-to-riches tale of Andrew Carnegie.

We also head to East Lothian and discover the haven inspired by the gardens of France, while on the Ardeer peninsula in Ayrshire, we learn that it houses an abundance of fascinating wildlife.

We also have our regular columnists, as Alexander McCall Smith takes a trip to rural Cambridgeshire, Alan Cochrane questions recent rewilding decisions, and Blair Bowman is in awe of Islay’s ninth distillery Ardnahoe.

There’s all this, and lots more, in this 220 page issue which is now in shops, and can be bought online HERE.
