Welcome Scotland Magazine July 2023 Issue
This issue, with festival fever in the air, we’ve decided to zone in on our capital city with not one but three special articles on Edinburgh. In Enlighten Yourself (p16), I’ve rounded up some of my favourite places to visit in the city, which you could try and squeeze into your trip this summer if you’re heading to the festival, or wait until a quieter time of the year.
In The Greatest Show in Scotland (p28), our very own Henrietta Easton gives the backstory on the city’s grandest spectacle of all, The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo; while in When Britannia Ruled the Waves (p33) Kirsten Henton shares her personal connection to the Royal Family’s former yacht (now an award-winning visitor attraction), and we
couldn’t resist sending Euan Myles along to the Royal Yacht Britannia to get some exclusive photos, too.
Elsewhere, in this issue’s Travels with Tom (p56) our columnist delves into the clan past of the neighbouring islands of Colonsay and
Oronsay, while we meet some of the locals of another of Scotland’s lesser-visited isles, which also has strong clan links, Lismore, in Living in the Great Garden (p50). I will warn you though, reading this piece may result in a strong desire to pack your bags, leave your hometown, and never come back. At least that’s the effect it had on me.
I hope you enjoy the issue, and as always, please do send me your feedback or stories of your recent trips and planned travels – I love to hear from you.
