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.

It has been a successful Royal National Mòd for Mull Gaelic Choir’s ladies – winning three awards.

The island woman won the Grampian Television Trophy for their performance in the rural choir ladies category.

After singing two songs, they also won the Rotary Club of Blairgowrie Trophy for the highest marks in music, and Elizabeth Jack was handed the Rod MacKenzie, Sgir’ a’ Bhac Memorial Baton for being the winning conductor.

Speaking about the choir’s achievement, Elizabeth said: ‘Wow. We haven’t won it for five years, but we have been in the top three several times.’

‘It would have been nice to have the four trophies,’ she added, with a laugh. ‘But that would be greedy.’

‘We are so delighted,’ she said. ‘The other choirs were so good.’
