The birthplace of valour, the country of worth

Just a quick (and belated) note to let you know that I have an article in the February issue of iScot magazine, which also features contributions from Alyn Smith MEP, Derek Bateman, Paul Kavanagh and many others.  If you're not a subscriber to the print edition, a digital copy can be inexpensively purchased HERE

The front cover features a verse by Robert Burns - "my heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here" - which oddly enough I'm fairly sure I first encountered in uber-mournful form in the Italian film The Great Beauty (La Grande Bellezza).  But here's a much less gloomy version performed by Fara at the Orkney Folk Festival.

  1. Just settling down to read iScot James.... It is one of the best new magazines around, brilliantly edited & produced by a man who sank his life savings into it's inception.... We have all the issues from day 1 onwards & intend to treasure them for a good number of years to come. They will, I'm sure, become a part of the history of a new independent country...
