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).

Tobermory’s Main Street was a merry bustle at the weekend when the town started Christmas early.

A huddle of festive stalls outside the Aros Hall and wintry sunshine brought out the crowds, including The Baxter family from the island who got dressed up especially for the occasion.

A Santa-on-wheels will be touring the island’s villages before December 25 dropping off presents to the children, with Covid-guidelines in mind to keep everyone safe says Mull councillor Mary-Jean Devon, who was delighted with the market’s Christmas cheer and turnout.
