Maw Broon's Cookbook
Launched in 1936 in the Sunday Post in Scotland, The Broons are undoubtedly Scotland's first family - the Nation's favourites - with a readership covering all generations. The Broons annual sells over 100,000 copies. This is a facsimile of Maw Broon's very own cookbook, which we borrowed from the sideboard at No. 10 Glebe Street, first made for her by her mother-in-law when Maw married Paw, and added-to over the years with recipes for every day and special days, from friends and neighbours and others that simply caught Maw's eye in The Sunday Post, or cut-out of the backof a flour bag. These are the very recipes that became the favourite dishes of the whole extended family, Maw and Paw, Granpaw, Daphne, Horace, Joe, Maggie, Hen, the Twins and the bairn.The strip itself is still hugely popular, with the Sunday Post having a circulation of over 1,000,000 copies every week, and there are some examples of the strip from years gone by that Maw must have clipped into her Cookbook- perhaps as reminders of special days. We've just left the 'bits and pieces' that you find tucked into a cookbook, exactly as we found them - stains and all.
Maw Broon's Cookbook is published at a time when nostalgia items are extremely popular, and although obviously firm favourites in Scotland, there will be interest nationwide, with support and endorsement from celebrity names - Gordon Ramsay, Lorraine Kelly, Ewan McGregor to name a few. The BBC's Robbie Shepherd and Tom Morton will lend a hand too! There will be promotion in DC Thomson's portfolio of newspapers and magazines - including The Sunday Post, The Courier, The Scots Magazine, and The People's Friend.

The West Highland Way begins in Milngavie, just outside Glasgow and ends at Fort William in the Highlands. It passes from the lowlands, across the Highland Boundary Fault and on into the Scottish Highlands. Much of the Way follows ancient and historic routes of communication and makes use of Drove Roads, Military Roads and Disused Railway Tracks. It is one of the most varied and beautiful walks in Scotland.
