In this issue... WALKING WITH THE DEAD Generations of Scots traversed makeshift paths barely wide enough for two people over uneven ground, up and down steep hills, carrying the bodies of their dead loved ones to ensure a Christian burial. Discover Scotland goes on a walking tour with Gerena Sumen, an expert on these "coffin roads" surrounding Loch Lomond to experience this very special part of MacGregor, Colquhoun and MacFarlane clan history. GLASGOW'S COWBOY EXPERIENCES Most Glaswegians will admit to knowing a few cowboys but few realise there is a statue to a real one in Scotland’s largest city. The day Buffalo Bill came to Glasgow. THE SKIRMISH THAT CHANGED HISTORY Almost everybody’s heard about the Jacobite victory at Prestonpans and ultimate defeat at Culloden but few know much about the Battle of Highbridge and its historic importance. It was here, on the 16 August 1745, at a crossing over the River Spean in Lochaber that a small band of Highlanders, outnumbered seven to one, fired the first shots in the rebellion that was to change Scotland for ever.
