History Scotland

The credentials of the authors makes this an outstanding publication . The photographs tuck me right into the places shown. It's like Christmas morning when a new issue arrives and that's saying something for a 72 year old! Reviewed 10 April 2020

History Scotland

As a former school history teacher in Scotland and having moved from Scotland to mid-Wales five years ago, History Scotland is invaluable for keeping in touch with issues and developments in Scottish history. Many thanks. Duncan Toms Reviewed 18 February 2020

History Scotland

My husband and I love visiting Scotland. This magazine allows us to learn more about Scotland's history and culture when we can't be there ourselves. We live in the southern part of the United States. Your magazine keeps us close to a country we love. Reviewed 13 February 2020
