Lesley Riddoch's headshot

I've written about almost every aspect of Scottish society especially land ownership, remote governance, indoors culture, disempowerment, inequality and poor health outcomes - and Scotland's remarkable spoken & musical cultures.

I've written and made films about the Nordic nations by way of comparison and I write generally about politics in Britain and Scottish independence.
