Leopard is filled with quirky articles this month focusing on the idiosyncrasies of life, with Pierre Foulin asking “Is Luck Inherited?” and John A Meldrum attempting to track down the legendary ‘yird-pig’ in In Pursuit of a Creepy Craitur

With May Festival fast approaching, you can find our Top 5 Leopard festival picks, with an extended version of this available on the May Festival website.

In the magazine, local author Marion Miller also profiles Sir Alexander MacRobert and his achievements in The Philanthropic MacRoberts, and you can find a small taster of this feature here.

We also hear again from Craig Wilson, the Kilted Chef, as he picks some home-grown produce to celebrate National Vegetarian Week. Remember, there is an opportunity to meet the Kilted Chef himself at his Farm to Fork sessions at May Festival, which you can learn more about here.

At Leopard we have also been celebrating Whisky Month. There are plenty of ways to get involved, and we have listed just a few here. You will also find many events, both whisky and non-whisky orientated, in What’s On. It looks like it will be a busy month!


A subscription to Leopard is always an ideal gift for family and friends, so why not treat them to the 'gift that keeps on giving'? And of course you can always treat yourself.
