"Magazine"- defined as 'a periodical publication
containing articles, stories, etc. usu. with photographs, illustrations, etc' (concise
Oxford Dictionary)... This, is a fair description of what this
section of 'find-it-in-scotland ' is.
...Also defined as 'a store for explosives'. THIS it is NOT! We want to present
items of indolent interest, of pastoral pleasures, of careless curiosity. We want to amuse, to attract, to
divert and engross: to fill you with fragrant fascinations, with deeds of derring-do and legends of life and

...Wee Bits (snippets of all sorts); Scottish
Names (in three Sub-sections); Beauty of

legends); Scots Firsts (not just inventions,

waanderrrs aboot the laand)
So please, read on;
hopefully, there will be items that interest you; some that may surprise you; some, you find hard to believe.
