Beekeeping has a long history in Scotland. The Scottish Beekeepers’ Association offers this book as a contemporary guide for beginners in an ancient craft.  There is no pretention to completeness. The aim is to give some basic information and guidelines for the novice beekeeper under modern Scottish conditions.

This publication was extensively revised in 2005.  The original publication was a collaboration between well respected Scottish beekeepers bringing together the contents of several guidance leaflets and ‘The Scottish Beekeepers’ Handbook’ of the 1950s.
