August on the BBC Radio Scotland blog was, for the most part anyway, all about the Edinburgh Festivals and that's the reason for the record number of posts that month - 61!

The Festival Cafe, The Comedy Cafe and MacAulay and Co came live from the Edinburgh International Conference Centre for two weeks, and the runners kindly took the time to take photographs and write us daily blogs about their experiences. I spent a few days there too and thoroughly enjoyed all the BBC Radio Scotland shows I saw.

The World Pipe Band Championships took place in July and were featured on Pipeline and the dedicated pages on the Scotland's Music site.

A programme that proved very popular and aroused quite a bit of debate was the four part series "An Alternative History of Celtic and Rangers". Another programme that launched in August was the eight part series Scotland At Prayer.

Swots came to an end after eight entertaining weeks, as did Edith Bowman's Album Show, however this meant the return of Another Country with Ricky Ross. During July Ricky met Tom Jones and launched the Another Country Movie Club with A Coal Miner's Daughter.
