Looking Back: Scotland in the 1940s

New York Tartan Week 2015 may be behind us, but the reminiscing doesn’t have to stop. TIME recently published an article on a LIFE magazine profile of Scotland from the 1940s, featuring the country’s landscape, economy, traditions, and celebrated exports, including whiskey, golf, tweed, herring, ships, and bagpipes. The awe-inspiring photographs from the original LIFE feature include bagpipe players, traditional dancers, Highland Games competitors, gorgeous views of the Scottish landscape, and more, and can be viewed in full on TIME’s website. Take a look at a preview of the images below… you’ll be looking forward to next year’s Tartan Week before you know it!
