Bath appointed Scottish Field editor

A FORMER sports editor at Scotland on Sunday has been appointed editor of Scottish lifestyle magazine, Scottish Field.

Richard Bath – who now writes sports match reports, focus features and restaurant reviews for the Edinburgh-based Sunday title – succeeds Archie Mackenzie, who is retiring.

It is understood he will work around four days per week for the monthly magazine, while also continuing to write for Scotland on Sunday, which he joined – as sports editor – nine years ago, from the Sunday Herald, where he was deputy sports editor and a senior writer.

He takes up the new post in the middle of next month.
