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.

Remembrance services were held on Mull to remember those who had died in battle.

This year’s Armistice Day was particularly special because it marked the centenary of the end of the First World War.

On Mull, islanders celebrated the Battle’s Over event with an ’emotional ceremony’ at the harbour building in Tobermory on Saturday night.

Councillor for Oban South and the Isles, Mary-Jean Devon, said: ‘We had a fantastic night. Nearly 300 people turned up and it stayed dry. We managed to project all the pictures on the wall of the harbour building of people from Mull who went to war. It was very emotional.
