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.
Family, friends and members of the public are invited to join pupils from Rhunahaorine Primary School as work from their Old Largie Project is showcased at Campbeltown Museum this weekend.
An invitation is open to everyone and anyone who would like to attend the the official opening of the children’s exhibits of their work at 2pm on Saturday.
There will be a short opening ceremony and cutting of the ribbon before people will be allowed in to view the children’s work on the history of Largie Estate and the MacDonald family.
The pupils have worked on the project for months, visiting Pollok House in Glasgow, as well as the MacDonald family crypt at Killean. They also met with a local archaeologist and Kilmartin Museum’s education and outreach officer to carry out a survey of the ruins of Old Largie Castle which sits beside the school and features on its logo.
There will be tours of Old Largie Castle from the school later this month and early next month. The tours will leave from the school at 1.45pm on Wednesday March 18, Friday March 27, and Thursday April 2.
