   iScot Magazine Reviewed 01 March 2020 SUBSCRIBER
Beautifully produced, well worth the money!
   Compulsory Reading for those in search of the real Scotland Reviewed 27 June 2019 SUBSCRIBER
Beautifully put together magazine. The quality of production and writing demonstrate that this is a labour of love. Layout and graphics are frankly gorgeous, a credit to the talent that exists but is all too frequently ignored in our nation. Quality of editorial is first class, a good mix of comment, politics and lifestyle. Its right up there with Scottish Field, but without the gun toting narcissism. If you want to know, to really know about the mood and the real feeling of Scotland, beyond the MSM soundbite, this is the glossy, velvet rope entrance to the rabbit hole.
   Very enlightening Reviewed 28 March 2019 SUBSCRIBER
Even though I live in the States I find aScot to be very interesting. It keeps me up to date on all the important issues facing Scotland today.
   Excellent quality from cover to cover Reviewed 22 March 2019 SUBSCRIBER
I have been a subscriber for just over a year now and have found iScot to be both informative and entertaining.....a welcome move away from the stereotypical content of one other Scottish periodicals. The range of contributors is well balanced, especially in this current period of political turmoil, and I have been surprised at how I have enjoyed content on some topics I would previously not bothered to read. Being the owner of two border collies I find the escapades of Blaze and the gang particularly enjoyable and very relatable!

Keep up the great work.
   My link to today's Scotland Reviewed 01 August 2017 SUBSCRIBER
Born and bred in Scotland, I now live in Germany. I still want to keep in touch with Scottish politics and culture. After a nudge from Wings over Scotland, I bought the digital version. To be honest, I wasn't expecting anything like the magazine I downloaded. Top quality authors, fascinating articles - and plenty of them. Heartily recommended. Thanks to all involved.
