Welcome to the summer issue of
Country Lifestyle Scotland

This issue is usually pegged as the Royal Highland Show lifestyle preview issue, but in truth, we also have a preview to The Game Fair and plenty of articles that are unrelated to this year's big show events.

Scotland has a rich heritage of making cheese, and Dunlop Dairy are in the process of being awarded the PGI for Dunlop cheddar, we speak to the owner who has revived the age old recipe.

We have an article pondering the plight of the salmon and the worries of the fishing fraternity over the dwindling numbers.

Last issue we offered a competition by Frox of Falkirk and we had a terrific day at Culcreuch Castle, in Fintry, photographing the winners dressed in their finery.

Also on the fashion front, we have compiled a few pages of ideal outfits that are practical as well as fashionable for a day at a show. It's all weather dependent, but a decent waterproof jacket can save the day.

We are also featuring a feature on a small business hand-making accessories with a tartan theme.

We love talented, crafty, artistic people and couldn't decide which artist to feature, so this issue we have two. McSpoff-ART creates the most amazing 'touchable' art, which texture and colours to knock your socks off.

And with a completely different style, we have Scott McGregor's artwork which features Highland cattle, and comedic scenes from any pub on any day of the week.

Finally, we went to speak to the Dykes family, famed for their involvement with the BBC's lambing live programme last year, to talk to them about their holiday cottage which offers solitude and relaxation looking out over the Peebleshire countryside. It's idyllic, in fact if anyone is looking for me, I would happily be found sitting on the deck of that cottage for the entire summer.

Hope you enjoy it.
