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).

Meet Lachie, the German short-haired pointer who was a star of the Mid Argyll Agricultural Show.

He won the dog scurry competition at this year’s event and made his owner Rhona Barnett very proud.

The show took place on Saturday August 12, with cattle, sheep, dogs, horses, ponies and poultry all playing their part.

A statement on the shows offical Facebook page read: ‘Mid Argyll Agricultural Society would like to thank everyone who attended and supported Mid-Argyll Show on Saturday.

‘There are so many people to thank – judges, stewards, entrants, committee, helpers, trade stands – you all know who you are – so thank you.’
