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).

Skipinnish are at Oban’s Corran Halls this Saturday with a special appearance from Oban High School Pipe Band.

Tickets are still available for the gig which starts at 8pm.

The band, that last played with the young pipers at this summer’s Oban Live, now has eight million Spotify streams and millions of YouTube hits under its collective belts.

After a stellar 2017, which saw the band being named Live Act of the Year at the Trad Music Awards, the Skipinnish juggernaut has continued to gather pace through 2018 selling out gigs all over the country, including a ground breaking show at the Usher Hall and a return to the famous Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow.
