The Highlander is a Scottish American community magazine covering all aspects of Scottish life, past and present. The magazine is published in print only
For over eight years I’ve been a regular contributor to the magazine, witing well-researched feature articles on Scottish history and heritage. My latest contributions to were:
- A feature length article on Edinburgh’s Magdalen Chapel, the last Roman Catholic chapel to be built in Edinburgh before the Scottish Reformation of 1560.
- A feature length history about the Maitland family and their home at Thirlestane Castle in Lauder (Scottish Borders).
- A feature length article about William Chambers, publisher and Lord Provost of Edinburgh. The article particularly focused on his work, around The Act for the improvement of the city of Edinburgh (1867) which legislated for the clearance of over 30 separate slum areas within the Old Town.
Managing Editor Neill Kennedy-Ray said of me, “I have always found him [Neil] to be professional, enthusiastic and easy to work with and have no hesitation in recommending his services to others.”
Because the articles are not shown online, scanned copies of the articles are available.
