david hume - The Scottish Enlightenment philosopher David Hume was born three hundred years ago.

Independence for Scotland - The British government thought the Scots would be satisfied with their own parliament but now they want to bring down the United Kingdom.

The Scottish Diaspora - The Scots have been leaving their country for all corners of the globe from the 13th century onwards - a phenomenon which has only begun to reverse over the past decade. But what impact did Scottish culture have on the many nations to which they emigrated - and how did it change the home country itself?

Trees for Life

The core purpose and vision of Trees for Life is to restore the Caledonian Forest and all its constituent species of flora and fauna to the Scottish Highlands. By engaging volunteers to achieve this, we aim to provide a powerful and educational experience that will promote the work of restoration to wider audiences. Through providing a demonstration of the techniques of ecological restoration, we aim to inspire similar projects elsewhere in the UK and around the world.
