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).

Youth activities convener Donald Young represented the Rotary Club of Lochaber at Ardnamurchan High School’s recent Celebration of Success evening and had the honour of presenting the Endeavour Award to sixth-year pupil Kay Christian. The Endeavour Trophy is awarded to individuals for their personal endeavours.

Kay has just finished S6 and will soon be 18. She lives in Strontian with her family and will be leaving home after the summer to study for an MA degree in Liberal Arts at  Dundee University.

Head teacher Christopher Millar-Craig said: ‘Kay received the Rotary award for endeavour this year as she has kept going steadily through all her studies and has demonstrated admirable commitment to her duties as head girl, with the Pupil Council, Eco Schools Project and other groups and events.’

Past-president Mr Young also presented the runners-up trophy for the Rotary Young Chef competition to Katie MacGillivray.

Donald enjoyed the event and added: ‘It was an excellent evening with an amazing number of wonderfully talented youngsters especially the young musicians. It was a pleasure to have been asked to attend and present the award. Events such as this confirm Rotary’s commitment to supporting the youth of Lochaber.’
