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).

Highlands and Islands MSP Donald Cameron is urging residents to support their local newspapers.

‘Our local media is indispensable, particularly during an emergency like the one we are experiencing when up-to-date and reliable local news is at a premium and many people are self-isolating at home,’ said the Conservative MSP, referring to the Coronavirus pandemic.

‘Our local newspapers provide a vital public service not just by reporting local news but also by promoting social cohesion amongst communities.

‘We owe a debt of thanks to the editors, journalists and their support staff who have continued to produce topical and relevant information for our communities. We have never needed local papers more than we do now.’
