At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.

We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a  subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device.  In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.

Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).

Last year, one of the country’s best-known race routes was changed to safeguard the future of the Ben Nevis Race and the future of the mountain.
In a further commitment to sustainability, Ben Nevis Race Association recently donated £500 to Nevis Landscape Partnership to contribute towards tackling the environmental impact of large-scale challenge events on Ben Nevis and Glen Nevis.
Lewis Pate, environmental projects officer with the Nevis Landscape Partnership, said: ‘Everyone here would like to thank Micky Whitehead and the Ben Nevis Race Association for their extremely kind donation.
‘We will continue to raise awareness of the environmental impacts caused by large-scale events on Ben Nevis and hope to work with many more race and challenge organisers to make their individual events as sustainable as possible.’
Sustainable Futures: Erosion and Minimal Impact is just one of Nevis Landscape Partnership’s 19 environmental projects.
Full details of the entire programme, along with engagement and volunteering events for the coming year, can be found on the Nevis Landscape Partnership’s website and social media feeds.
