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. Thanks you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time

Community members took a walk down memory lane in a special event held in Lochaber Village Hall
Nether Lochaber Community Council hosted a memories weekend allowing folk to reminisce how the area used to be and how it has changed through the past century.
The event, which took place in the village hall on January 14 and 15, and included a rolling slideshow and prints of photos, maps of the village, history of the area, as well as information about new projects, was described as a great success.
Iain Jenner said: ‘On behalf of NLCC, I would like to thank the many residents who came to visit our memories weekend on January 14 and 15 at Nether Lochaber Village Hall, and made the event such an enjoyable success.
‘In addition, thanks must go to Jennifer Jarl, Stewart Livingston and Lisa Glaze for setting up the exhibition itself; to Elaine Cameron and JJ for the ample supply of home-baking; and to JJ, LG and others who volunteered their time to serve tea and coffee, and guide visitors around the information tables.
‘So enthusiastic was the reception for our memories weekend slideshow and exhibits that an online archive is to be set up in order to have a permanent record of historic photographs and documents, which residents and friends can access and contribute to. As soon as this is available, a link will be posted on the NLCC’s Facebook page.’
