Media Enquiries

Mike_SmallBella Caledonia is edited by Mike Small. We are available for media comment on the independence referendum, the role of social media, Scottish culture and political affairs. We can be contacted via bellasletters@yahoo.co.uk or via @bellacaledonia.

Bella Caledonia publishes Closer magazine quarterly and also produced an album of music which you can download here. We produced the Scotland Says Yes poster in collaboration with the Scottish Independence Convention.

We are the only blog to publish a gaelic language column HERE.

We have been publishing since 2007. Since then we have been read by over 5 million people. We are now read by over 40,000 people daily, making us the most widely-read Scottish-based blog. This is a sort-of editorial founding statement here.

We have published Irvine Welsh,  Lesley Riddoch, Kevin Williamson, David Greig, Niki Seth-Smith, Andy Wightman and countless others, and are committed to new writing and giving platform to unexpected and excluded voices.
