Secretive Sidlaws

Cover of The Geographer, Autumn 2018

A short post this week, but with the potential for more reading than usual. Last summer, an invitation arrived out of the blue from the Royal Scottish Geographical Society, to make a contribution to their magazine, The Geographer. They wanted me to write about the Sidlaw Hills, for an issue devoted to the River Tay. Not many people write about the Sidlaws, and it seems my various wanderings among those hills, which I’ve described here, have edged me towards expert status in a very small field of competitors.

The piece, entitled “Secretive Sidlaws”, appeared in the Autumn 2018 edition of the magazine, but I’ve held off mentioning it here until a copy is freely downloadable. You’ll find it here (4.2 MB pdf). Your Humble Correspondent turns up on page 15, but the rest of the magazine provides a lot of interesting reading.

  1. I finally sat down and read your article and thoroughly enjoyed. It really does make me wish to have a wander around there – but so much to do and see and so little time.

    1. Glad you enjoyed it. I suspect there are places like the Sidlaws all over the world – superficially simple and generally unregarded, but actually intricate and rich with history.
