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).

Glenuig Inn is one of only two UK companies to be shortlisted in the European Business Awards for the Environment in Vienna in November.

The award scheme recognises businesses that are making an outstanding contribution to sustainable development through eco-innovation. Applications are only open to winners or runners-up of recognised national awards and this year the shortlist was selected from 161 applications from 19 countries.

The jury praised the holistic approach and integration of sustainability throughout Glenuig Inn and were impressed with the unique example of sustainability.

Steve Macfarlane, director of Glenuig Inn, said: ‘It’s a huge honour and a credit to the whole team that we’ve been selected to join just 21 other finalists across nine countries at these prestigious awards.’

He added: ‘When we started out to create a financially and environmentally sustainable business within the hospitality sector 10 years ago, I never imagined we would be recognised for our achievements on national and international platforms. Today it is increasingly important businesses and individuals contribute proactively to the circular economy and cease to take our finite resources for granted.’
