Lines Review was a Scottish poetry journal founded by the publisher Callum Macdonald in 1952.[1] Its original editorial board included the Scottish poets Sydney Goodsir Smith, Hugh MacDiarmid, Norman MacCaig, Sorley MacLean and Denis Peploe.[2] Latterly its individual editors included the poets Robin Fulton and Tessa Ransford. Tessa Ransford, the founder of the Scottish Poetry Library, published the final issue in 1998.[1]

The magazine featured the poetry of many important Scottish poets such as Iain Crichton Smith, George Mackay Brown or Angus Calder and was a starting point for many young Scottish poets.

The editor of Lines Review from 1977 to 1984 was the poet, William Montgomerie (1904 Glasgow - 1994 Edinburgh).
