Don’t just take our word on how good Holyrood is. See what our readers say:

Holyrood magazine has firmly established itself as part of the Scottish political scene and as its revealing interviews with the likes of Dennis Healey on Scotland’s oil wealth shows, Holyrood provides agenda-leading coverage. Under Mandy’s editorship, the magazine is one of the best platforms in the country for fair, balanced and insightful coverage of our country’s democratic progress and of Scotland’s home rule journey as we enter one of the most exciting periods in the nation’s history.”

The Rt Hon Alex Salmond MSP, former First Minister of Scotland

"Holyrood Magazine has been a good friend to the parliament, right from the very start when it's serious and critical analysis of its daily mechanics were important in helping it to establish itself as a proper assembly which could bring about meaningful change to the people it serves. Holyrood has played a full part in all of the debates in Scottish politics since 1999, opening up a space where real political ideas, thoughts and personalities could be explored. It continues to offer an authoritative and knowledgeable critique of Scottish politics, delivered with a light touch that cuts across any self-regard held by the political class."

Johann Lamont MSP, former leader of Scottish Labour

"Holyrood is Scotland's national magazine dedicated to covering the cut and thrust of the Scottish political scene that has gone from strength to strength.

"As we debate what happens to our 300 year political union, Holyrood has a key role to play in reporting and analysing how the constitutional debate unfolds.

"With incisive interviews and features that shine a spotlight on Scottish politics and Scottish politicians, Holyrood magazine is right at the centre of Scottish political debate."

Rt Hon Michael Moore, MP, former Secretary of State for Scotland

"Since Holyrood started publishing in 1999, it has grown into one of the definitive resources on Scottish politics and policy. Mandy and the team are to be commended for their work and I’m certain it will remain as relevant and engaging as ever in the run up to the referendum and long afterwards."

Margaret Curran MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland

"The width of coverage and depth of analysis makes Holyrood compelling reading. The magazine goes beyond the commonplace and, particularly through the excellent feature interviews, consistently finds a new take on political leadership and the democratic process in Scotland."

Sir Peter Housden, Permanent Secretary, Scottish Government
