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