I’d like to begin by welcoming our new Patrons and thanking long-time Patrons for the continuation of your support. I’ve, hopefully, earned such excellent support. Typing up your requests from the excellent ‘Gazetteer of Scotland‘ (1847) has fair kept me busy over the last couple of months. 174 articles later and I felt a break was needed – it’s not nearly so random and interesting if we spend our time on the one thing forever...
It’s been a busy couple of months since my last update. I honesty hadn’t realised it had been so long, – used to be a near daily thing. I’ll try to get the order of events as close as possible to how they occurred chronologically...
RSH Newspaper Research
The British Newspaper Archive have provided us with banners for the site - anyone subscribing to them, via RSH, will now be helping maintain the site ☺️
I go to them for most research - their search function & filters are really useful to refine your searchings - most recently I was curious about the Flannan Isle Lighthouse mystery and so they were my first port-of-call for more info 😁
RSH.scot posts only publish automatically to Twitter & I'm terrible at remembering to share them on other platforms, sorry. If you're into translated-from-Gaelic traditional popular tales head here -
Stories added on a fairly regular basis.
Patreon set up for those interested in obtaining ltd edition hardbacks of RSH publications -
For Railway Incidents, added by month super regularly see here -
I guess my first toot would have to be to let folk know the 'Treaty of Union Articles' (2019) is available in paperback & kindle versions.
#BritNats telling us exactly what the issues are with the union between Scotland & England.
Information that's incredibly still so relevant today.
Director Mark MacNicol has written a new stage play 'IncludED' inspired by the ENABLE Scotland campaign of same name fighting for inclusion for pupils with learning disabilities.

Part 2 of our 4th & final case, the trial itself of Oscar Slater for the brutal murder of Miss Marion Gilchrist, is available as a Podcast, most places you'd usually get a listen (as far as I know) ☺️
If anyone tries any of these do let me know about it in the post comments 🙏😉
I do have to apologise for the Veal's Head Soup - as bad as some are, that one got me nauseous...
I might be looking for taste testers soon 😉
Max Robespierre has put in a request for old Scottish recipes - so I'll get on that 👌
Is this something that would interest others? I mean I'll dae it anyway 😆 but I'm intrigued as to whether anyone would be up for experimenting by making them once uploaded? 🤔

RSH patron sent £ on publication of 'Scottish Railway Incidents, vol. 2' but as his book had already been obtained, I've spent it on something I've wanted done for years now 🙏

Scottish Railway Incidents; 1904-1907, Vol.2 Has Landed!
It took all of 4 days for both the paperback and hardback editions to be sent out for me to have a wee look at, which bodes well for RSH Patrons receiving their copies 🙏☺️
Paul Burns has provided another excellent piece of old Scottish music for us - this time it's ‘The Diel’s Awa Wi’ Th’ Exciseman,’ a poem by Robert Burns (1792) - arranged by himself for us ☺️
A fantastic wee, self-funded, Glasgow-based horror(ish) movie 'Dreaded Light,' fae director Mark MacNicol, has just dropped & I really enjoyed it. Definitely recommend 😉
