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).

The Glenuig Inn has been named as the winner of Green Hotelier Awards 2018 in the waste category.

The inn has reduced its waste to landfill by a massive 97.5 per cent since 2007, and is now only producing the equivalent to half a domestic refuse bin per week.

The hotel has banished all single-use plastic from the business, dried and sterilised food waste is commingled with wood pellets to provide all the heating and hot water, meaning there is no food waste for disposal.

Steve Macfarlane, director of the Glenuig Inn, said: ‘We’re absolutely delighted and honoured to have won this prestigious global award and hope that we can inspire others to take the right steps to a sustainable future.’
