Media Enquiries

Bella Caledonia is edited by Mike Small. We are available for media comment on social struggle, the independence movement, climate crisis and Scottish culture and political affairs. We can be contacted via bellasletters@yahoo.co.uk or via @bellacaledonia.

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 published daily and are committed to new writing and giving platform to unexpected and excluded voices. See our Contributors section here. We publish in English, Gaelic and Scots.

We were nominated as one of the Top Ten Political Blogs in the UK in 2019.

Earlier this year we published ‘Building a New Catalonia’ an anthology articulating the political strategies and aspirations of the anti-capitalist, feminist and socialist struggles for self-determination in Catalonia.
