1971 COMES UN­DER THE SPOT­LIGHT IN THIS SE­LEC­TION OF IMAGES FROM SCOT­TISH FIELD MAG­A­ZINE

SCOTS Heritage Magazine - - Bygone Scotland -

With the Seven­ties of­ten seen as an ex­plo­sion of colour, technology and mu­sic, Scot­tish Field con­tin­ued to of­fer a fo­cus on a coun­try of skilled ru­ral peo­ple and their pas­sion for their sur­round­ings. This re­spect for tra­di­tion, as well as an ap­pre­ci­a­tion of moder­nity saw

records, fash­ion, sports cars, ex­otic hol­i­days and coun­try homes and gar­dens, all fea­tur­ing within the pages of the mag­a­zine. Fash­ions and tastes may have changed, but Scot­land is still a coun­try of de­sign and beauty. The year also saw the last fam­i­lies leav­ing the tiny is­land of Scarp in the Outer He­brides to move across to the big­ger neigh­bour­ing is­land of Har­ris. Scarp is most fa­mous for be­ing the site of ex­per­i­ments with rocket mail, which failed to take off due to the cost and nu­mer­ous er­rors. The coun­try was mov­ing for­ward, and the mag­a­zine of­fered tra­di­tion and the best of in­no­va­tion for its read­ers.
