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.

This has been the big week, when students discovered their exam results.

David Fyfe, head teacher at Campbeltown Grammar School, told the Courier: ‘Pupils and staff at Campbeltown Grammar have worked extremely hard in preparation for the exams.

‘I would like to congratulate our young people on the hard work and commitment they have shown, and celebrate their achievements with them. I also want to reassure those pupils who perhaps did not get the results they wanted, that we are here to support them and offer advice.’

Argyll and Bute Council has revealed that ‘the majority’ of pupils across the area had gained the qualifications they were hoping for from the Scottish Qualifications Authority.

No breakdown has been provided by the council yet; analysis of the results is ongoing. A report will be presented to the community services committee, which next meets on Thursday August 22.
