Hi, and welcome to the spring issue of Country Lifestyle Scotland

Hi, and welcome to the summer issue of Country Lifestyle Scotland. If, in the words of the Nolan Sisters, you are 'In the mood for dancing', then this year's Royal Highland Show is going to be a treat.

The Shindig at the Show is an invite to take part in a mass eightsome reel, to the sounds of a ceilidh band at 7pm on the Friday of the show. You have to sign up first with a group of eight to get involved, but I can see it being an absolute rammy of bewildered bodies - at least I hope it is.

And every day at noon there will be a mini ceilidh in the countryside area with the help of an MC to keep the dancing going.

A pat on the back for the show organisers. The show is many things to many people, but a massive social event is top of the list, and what better way to spend your precious social time than whirling a complete stranger round a ring. I can't wait.

We have a preview of the lifestyle side of the show in this issue, along with a fond look back at the Clydesdale's contribution to agriculture. This will be highlighted at this year's show, with a display of Clydesdales recreating their role in the world of farming in the main ring. That's at 4.15pm on Friday.

As always, feel free to get in touch with feature ideas, I am always happy to hear from readers.
