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).

Youngsters on Mull have been busy weaving willow teepees.

The activity sessions were just part of holiday fun organised over the Easter break by the South West Mull and Iona Development (SWMID) group and friends.

The finished teepees will now be joining other structures for people to enjoy in Tiroran Community Forest.

Emily Wilkins from the Mull and Iona Ranger Service took these photographs to share with Oban Times readers.

SWMID will also be revealing the winner of its People In The Forest photography competition on May 1.

Visitors to Tiroran were encouraged to get creative with their cameras to snap some shots of how they enjoy the forest.

The closing date was April 18 with prizes to be won for primary and senior school ages – and over-18s too.
