Abstract: We are pleased to report on an exchange copy of a fine journal in a field analogous to 'Australian Folklore', this being the most recent volume, no. 36 (2011-2013) of 'Scottish Studies: The Journal of the School of Scottish Studies', University of Edinburgh, and edited by John Shaw. This research arm of the University of Edinburgh has gathered up six of their studies in the field of Scottish ethnology, with digitized work there involving both of the indigenous languages of Scotland with the preponderance of Gaelic-based materials reflecting the impressive contents of the School's archive. Ultimately one of Europe's foremost 19th century folklore collections will both become an effective research tool, as well as making all these materials available to communities throughout Scotland. This work will highlight the efforts of the most prolific collector, Calum Maclean, and another manuscript of 150 Highland tales from the early 19th century is now freely available online, while a like project aims to so produce a new critical edition of Walter Scott's epistolary) of the Scottish Border and like research proceeds on: calendar customs; community rituals; Scottish emigrant communities; place names; and traditional music.
