Hidden Scotland Magazine Issue 7


A guide to Scotland’s hidden spots, this is a bi-annual magazine. A coffee table stable that will provide inspiration and information for travels around the country. The photos alone are enough to make you want to pack your bag. Founded by Jack Cairney in 2016, looking to inspire others to travel to and around Scotland but always sharing the message to roam responsibly “Take only photographs and leave only footprints”

Issue 7 was published Autumn-Winter 2023-24

This issue explores how traditional Scotland intersects with modern Scotland. From tartan, which is getting the V&A Dundee treatment, to the resurgence of artisan weaving and a return to traditional signage on shops. Looking at embedded traditions in towns across Scotland.

As ever, the magazine is full of characters. We meet Scotland’s national poet Kathleen Jamie, who explains how poetry has shaped the country, and the photographer Jamie Ellington, who tells us what it was like growing up in the sea-access-only village of Crovie. Then there are the communities who have pulled together to achieve amazing things – in places like the island of Eigg and the mainland’s most remote pub.

It’s the darker season, so we’re giving you lots of opportunity to coorie doon. There’s a roundup of Scottish self-catering cottages, from tree houses to minimalist off-grid cabins. If you need any more inspiration to venture outside, read about the wintering geese of Islay: tens of thousands of them fly from Greenland to the Inner Hebrides every winter. Happy reading and as ever, enjoy the journey. Slainte mhath

The magazine is beautifully printed and of high quality but the intention is for it to be well used and to become a point of reference, they encourage this with dedicated note pages at different stages of the magazine. 20 x 25.5 cm
