    Rescue plan for the mill on the Nith

    ONCE, at Dumfries railway station, there stood a lovely old cabbie's kiosk. Then, one morning before last Christmas, it disappeared. So, who dunnit? The finger points at someone but, as yet, Holmes and Watson haven't solved the crime. This vanishing act, and there have been many similar, reminds me of the time when, in the late 1970s, the then oldest house in Newton Stewart was demolished to make way for a Safeway's car park… read more>>

    Editorial Comment

    THE APPOINTMENT of Robert Wilson as the new chairman of Creative Scotland, thus replacing the banker, Ben Thomson, suggests that Mr Wilson is like a Knight of the Round Table who is prepared to pick up the poisoned chalice in defence of the arts… read more>>

    Another West Lothian question…

    IT IS disconcerting to witness the way time flies and sometimes for more reasons than simply time flying. For example, I find it disconcerting to note that the Jupiter Artland sculpture park near Wilkieston in West Lothian opened to the public ten years ago… read more>>

    Cultural readout from Berwick's Bridge Street

    I'VE SET ASIDE binoculars and microscope to explore different ways of seeing. It's been revealing. Like discovering the work of Sargy Mann. Some say his later paintings, produced when he had lost his sight, were his best, relying as they do on memory and imagination… read more>>

    Ten years on and Edinburgh Palette faces the knife…

    TEN YEARS ago, the only inhabitants of a grim looking unused and unwanted 1970s Edinburgh office block were pigeons in the rafters. Fast forward a decade and this once desolate building, St Margaret's House on London Road, is now home to a flourishing creative arts community… read more>>

    'At Home' with Duggie Fields

    HE'S BEEN a pivotal part of the Pop Art world for several decades. Yet never before has his home been seen by the public as part of an exhibition. Next month for the first time artist Duggie Fields will have his home on show as part of an installation at the Glasgow Modern Institute as part of Glasgow International 2018… read more>>

    Curtains for Royal Mile Market

    THE HISTORIC Tron Kirk is to become a heritage centre for Edinburgh's Old and New Towns. The city council has agreed to give Edinburgh World Heritage (EWH) a three-year lease on the A-listed building in the Royal Mile – and the new centre could open as soon as June. The plan is to showcase the history and architecture of the Capital's world heritage site along with a shop to fund the project. Longer term, EWH proposes a complete refurbishment of the building. Dating back to 1633, the Kirk is officially listed on the Historic Environment Scotland Buildings at Risk register… read more>>
