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.
