    Editorial Comment

    FIFTY YEARS ago, a visitor to Scotland would have found the country little different from what it was before the Second World War, its towns and cities marked by clearly defined boundaries, its roads single track (except for one in the Highlands), its swathes of arable land in the south and east unscarred by power lines or wireless masts, and the Highlands vast areas of unspoilt moorlands and mountains enlivened by the occasional hunting lodge or castle… read more>>

I had emailed them but had no reply by the time of writing, however, I did receive a reply some three weeks later. The new Marketing & Communications Manager got in touch, telling me she agreed with my view that Jupiter Artland did seem 'a bit of an unknown' to many West Lothian residents, claiming that this was something she was 'keen to rectify.'… read more>>

    More literary diversity, please
