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).
A four-week major surfacing resurfacing project on three sections of the A85 and one section of the A828 will now not be completed until mid-December, BEAR Scotland has said.
The £685,000 project to improve the road surface had been due to start on Monday November 16 and finish on December 15, but heavy rainfall in recent weeks led to the works being postponed.

A85 west of Saulmore have started and will last until Sunday December 13, or a total of 12 nights, excluding Friday and Saturday nights. A 10mph convoy system will be in place between 8pm and 6am each night.
A85 Pass of Brander will start on Tuesday December 8 until Monday December 15, or a total of five day excluding Saturday and Sunday. A 10mph convoy system will be in place between 7am and 6pm each day.
A828 south of Ledaig will start on Tuesday December 15 to Wednesday December 16, or two days. A 10mph convoy system will be in place between 7am and 6pm each day.
