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).

Congratulations to Edmund and Irene Mackenzie, Plockton, who celebrated their golden wedding on February 6.

Sam Bilner, in conjunction with the Plockton Past and Present Facebook page, decided to make a calendar of Plockton views for charity, inviting people to enter a competition by sending them their photos to see what photos would make it into the calendar.

Twelve photos were chosen and 100 calendars were made.  All 100 were sold and the profit of £781.06 was given to Kyleakin Connections.

Due to very strong east and north east winds over the past two weeks, and no sign of change, huge amounts of seaweed have been washed up on Plockton foreshore.

Charlie M MacRae, who has lived by the foreshore all his life, said it was the most he had ever seen. He feared it may not move and will rot in the summer.

Deaths recently with Lochalsh, Glenshiel and Glenelg connections were Eleanor Macfadyen, Kyle; Tom Tasker, Kyle; Ian Davies, Plockton; Farquhar Macrae,  Inverinate; Lousie Matheson, Glenshiel; Jean Simpson, Plockton; and Chris Main Glenelg. Sympathy is expressed to sorrowing relatives.
