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).

Lundavra Primary School pupils were rewarded for their quick litter-picking with some fast food last week.

Primary 6/7 students joined staff from McDonald’s in Fort William on a litter pick last Tuesday.

They collected 12 bags of rubbish in 45 minutes on the path behind McDonald’s and around An Aird. Naomi Lawrie, shift manager of McDonald’s, took the lead on the litter pick and the youngsters were treated to a Happy Meal for their hard work.

Laura Forbes was working in the restaurant that day. She said the fast-food chain holds the litter picks a couple of times a year to be more eco-friendly and keep the town tidy and they try to get the schools involved.
