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!

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

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.

We are from the USA and love traveling to Scotland and it's history. So glad I found this digital downloadable form of the magazine. One of my favorite magazines of all times.
