Welcome to the summer issue of Country Lifestyle Scotland.
You join us right in the middle of the show season, and there is none more anticipated than The Royal Highland Show. Four days of supreme agricultural fun and frivolity is on the cards, and we have put together a preview of what is on at the show, apart from the world famous livestock showing, to keep you and your family busy.
The work involved in putting on such a show is immense, and we have had a chat with three leading ladies from RHASS, RHET and the SAYFC, to ask them how they got to the top in such a male dominated environment, and how their show plans are coming along.
There is so much more inside, including fashion, art, and a Young Farmer anniversary feature.
Also, two fantastic travel features, one looking at the picturesque Highland Perthshire region, and also a truly stunning lodge by the shores of Uig bay on the Isle of Lewis.
With the sun finally breaking through who can fail to feel uplifted, and we hope you get the chance to sit outside, Chardonnay in hand, and read your CLS from to cover to cover.
