Step inside June’s issue of Scottish Field…

THE beautiful south of Scotland is in focus in the latest issue of Scottish Field magazine, which is on sale now, both in shops and online.

Our writers have been busy sharing stories from the Borders and Dumfries & Galloway.

They include the spectacular story of Graeme Parker, a genial Wigtownshire hoof trimmer turned social media star with nearly four million subscribers.

Meanwhile, Morag Bootland uncovers 19th century Borders life through Jack Mackay Wilson’s fascinating literary works.

Plus adventurer Leven Brown explains why the best is still to come with “The last great first”.

Dougray Scott, the Fife-born actor and heart-throb reveals his enduring love for football, dogs and drama.

Though she was brought up in southern Germany, Crieff-based photographer Annette Forsyth fell head over heels for Scotland’s wild landscapes and soft, subtle light.

With a passion for food, horticulture and farming, Helen Cross shares her patch to plate ethos with Rosie Morton, and shows how even a small, urban garden can aid mind, body and soul.

Plus, once you’ve read Helen’s recipes, don’t miss Scottish Field wine columnist James Robertson’s accompanying bottles.
