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).

Highland Hospitality Wants You will take place on Wednesday, April 28, from 2- 3.15pm via Zoom and will showcase the range of opportunities available as the hospitality industry gets set to reopen.
Aimed at current school pupils, school leavers and all young people up to 25 years of age, the live session will shine a light on the wide range of Highland-based hospitality job opportunities, apprenticeships and college courses available to young people.
DYW West Highland is delighted to welcome speakers from leading highland hotels such as the five star Torridon Hotel, the Lovat Loch Ness, the Moorings in Fort William, Sligachan Hotel on Skye and The Gairloch Hotel.
The hospitality experts will showcase careers in front of house, reception, catering, management and housekeeping. The webinar will also hear from young people currently working and training in hospitality.
Rohaise Rose Bistrow, people director of The Torridon Hotel said: ‘An exciting adventure lies ahead as the doors open on hospitality, our guests, visitors and
customers are going to be arriving and we need you to make them feel welcome.
‘Varied career opportunities that you may have never considered will be available, whether you like the thrill of running a busy restaurant, delivering training from the Human resources departments or keeping the garden and grounds tidy outside.
‘Indoors, outdoors, at a desk or on your feet, take a look at what could be waiting for you.’
Audience members will have the opportunity to ask industry experts their questions after the presentations, gaining information about opportunities on offer as well as hints and tips about the qualities employers are looking for.
