The Scots Magazine
The Scots Magazine is a high-quality glossy, monthly magazine that celebrates the best of Scotland – her incredible scenery, vibrant culture and fabulous people. It carries some of the finest writing on all aspects of Scottish life, from the exciting and thriving city-scene to the great outdoors and world-class wild places – all complemented by the most stunning photography.
The oldest magazine in the world still in publication, The Scots Magazine’s first issue was in 1739. Part of Scotland’s cultural heritage, the title has covered key events in the nation’s history – from the battles of Culloden and Waterloo, for which we have eye-witness reports, right up until the 2014 Independence Referendum. Past contributors include James Boswell, Robert Burns and Sir Walter Scott.
DC Thomson acquired The Scots Magazine in 1924. Today, with an award-winning website, it continues to thrive in the digital era. The title reported a 3% growth in retail sales in the last year to ensure it remains the world’s best-selling Scottish-interest title by a considerable margin.
