Here it is once again – the season of sparkle, present-giving and festive indulgence. We all celebrate the arrival of old St. Nick in our own way, but we have some suggestions that you might want to add to the Christmas list. We've planned a stylish festive trip to Edinburgh's West End, put together the ultimate gift guide, and included some mouth-watering menus for your Christmas table.

We have some fantastic features this issue: from the stylish, looking at a decade of the Scottish Style Awards, to the sporty, where we get into the swing of playing golf at Archerfield’s world-class coaching and club fitting facility. We’ve also travelled to Loch Fyne to visit the fantastic Portavadie, and travelled to a different kind of waterfront, relaxing next to the Oslo Fjord in the Norwegian capital’s latest five-star hotel.

We have interviews with some incredibly inspiring women, including critically-acclaimed singer Christine Bovill and Scotland’s top solicitor, the award-winning Cat MacLean. We also talk to Marie Degan, whose son Allan was last seen outside a Fife nightclub two years ago. She explains how social media has helped her family get through each day, and why they’ll never stop looking for answers.

Don’t forget to enter our competition this issue – if you’re lucky, you could be heading to the beautiful Fonab Castle Hotel & Spa on the banks of Loch Faskally. And remember: if you’re pondering what the perfect gift could be for that discerning friend or selective loved one, look no further than a subscription to the magazine in front of you. We can assure you, with what we have coming up in 2016, they won’t be disappointed.

A happy Christmas and New Year to you all,

Maria M. Burnett
