Circle Publications provides a number of items for the interest and edification of Freemasons all over the world. Pride of place
goes to the magazine, The Ashlar, first published in 1997. This idiosyncratic publication is produced thrice yearly, in January,
March and September, this timing designed as the best fit for the Scottish Masonic calendar.
The Ashlar is produced as a high quality magazine, in colour, at the minimal cost of £3.00 per copy. It is not intended to be an academic journal; the main focus is on providing a platform where a Mason can express his opinions. However, the magazine is intended to provide information on Scottish Freemasonry for Freemasons around the world and therefore is a superb medium in promoting Masonic education.
The Ashlar is already enjoyed by many with subscribers in every continent. We trust this website will encourage you to become a regular reader and support Scottish Freemasonry.
