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).

Lochaber and Lorn Ramblers are striding out once more in accordance with the latest Government guidance.

Walks restarted on Saturday, March 13, with a walk in Glencoe and another near Loch Seil and the group hopes to organise at least two walks each week with attendees restricted to their local authority area (Lochaber/Argyll) and numbers to stay within the government guidelines of 15.

Walk leader Trevor Jones is thrilled that small groups can now get back out and enjoy some of the many fantastic walks the regions have to offer.

‘This is great news for our members and others who just want to get out there and enjoy our countryside as part of a social group.

‘We are a friendly group who extend a warm welcome to all new walkers, visitors and guests. People can walk with us up to three times before being asked to join so it’s well worth coming along for a try.

‘Walking is known to alleviate mental stress and meeting with others with (properly distanced) social interaction benefits all of our walkers.’

Lochaber and Lorn Ramblers is a charitable organisation with all walks navigated and graded within the safety of a group. New members are always welcome but under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Walks are updated on the group’s website ( on a regular basis and can also be found on the Lochaber and Lorn Ramblers Meet Up page (
