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).

Teamwork was vital for the ladies on the log carrying challenge.

Oban Ladies Squash Club dared to be different at the weekend.

Over two days of mud, sweat and tears, the courageous squad of 14 women completed an assault course of log carrying, Ganavan beach sand crawling and various other tortuous activities.

The brainchild of Colin MacNiven and Jackie Kersley, who look after the ladies squash training team, they decided to push the team to new levels of fitness and personal achievement.

The two-day course was a huge success and very entertaining for the tourists who looked on with total bemusement.

The event was only made possible by sponsors Neil McGougan Builders, Puffin Dive Centre and Oban Filling Station.
