The Scots Magazine
by Hannah McLaren
2w ago
Unusual behaviour from a mating pair of white-tailed eagles has been observed on the Isle of Mull – the parents of an injured chick continue to care for their youngster a year on. Two white-tailed eagles have stunned experts after taking a break from breeding season altogether to care for their injured chick. In July last year, the chick fell from its nest during unseasonably wild weather and broke its left wing. The chick’s uninjured sibling left the nest as expected in August, yet a year on the parents are still feeding the second now juvenile bird. Dave Sexton, The Royal Society for the Pro ..read more

Despite the country’s role in the UK’s hottest May on record, you’re not alone if you feel like it’s been extremely cold in Scotland this summer. According to Met Office figures, it’s safe to assume woolly socks, jumpers and rain jackets will be having an extended fashion season this summer. Despite a warmer than average May, the coming months look very dreich. May 2024’s average mean temperature of 13.1C for the UK beat the 2008 record figure of 12.1C. This was particularly particularly influenced by above average temperatures in Scotland, where a May mean temperature of 12.3C beat 2018’s pr ..read more

New Scottish Horror Video Game ‘Still Wakes the Deep’
The Scots Magazine
by Hannah McLaren
3w ago
Where would developers even set a Scottish horror video game? In the middle of the North Sea on a remote oil rig in the 70s, of course! Still Wakes the Deep is a terrifying concept. The game takes place on the Beira D oil rig off the coast of Scotland in 1975. When creepy creatures from the depths below climb onboard, everything takes a turn for the worse. A group of workers find themselves trapped and stranded and picked off one by one. “This is also probably the most Scottish game you’ll ever play, right down to a staggering amount of swearing.” – The Guardian. As this is a Scottish hor ..read more

Broadcast journalist Laura Miller celebrates five years presenting the BBC’s Reporting Scotland this autumn. Here are her favourite spots in Scotland that she loves to visit when off camera. Pittenweem It just holds lovely past memories, but it is one of those places we go all the time. East Neuk has got a pull for me. Pittenweem was he first holiday we had with our daughter, it was a lovely long weekend, we were in a bubble. I love the winding alleys up from the harbour, the lovely little shops, and the walk along that coastal path to St Monans. It’s a slightly rocky path, and we have taken ..read more

Scottish History In Minutes – The Life Of Sir Walter Scott
The Scots Magazine
by Gayle Anderson
1M ago
Sir Walter Scott, the Scottish historical novelist, poet, playwright, and historian whose works remain classics… At 200 feet, the Scott Monument in Edinburgh – built in honour of Sir Walter Scott – is the tallest dedicated to a writer on the planet. Climb its 287 steps and you can gaze across that iconic capital skyline to Waverley station, which by public demand was named after Scott’s first novel. It’s the only train station in the world to be named after a book. This A-lister level of adoration might initially seem a bit baffling. These days, Scott is far less celebrated than his contempora ..read more
