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 on 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.

Six teams took part in the 2018 annual primary schools quiz in Dalintober Primary School.

A Rotary Club of Campbeltown spokesperson said: ‘Pupils, teachers and supporting parents enjoyed the recent interesting and close fought contest which resulted in the Gigha/Rhunahaorine joint team being the eventual winners by just one point.

‘Depute head teacher of Dalintober, Mrs Catherine Black, gave the vote of thanks to the schools who had taken part and to the Rotary Club for its organisation, and thanks are due to Dalintober Primary School for once again hosting the event.’

The scores were as follows: Gigha/Rhunahaorine 45 points; Castlehill One 44; Castlehill Two 40; Dalintober One 37; Dalintober Two 36; Drumlemble 33.

The Gigha and Rhunahaorine team will compete in the district final in Pollokshaws Burgh Hall next Tuesday May.
