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.

There was beautiful weather, at last, for Dunaverty Golf Club’s annual SSAFA Quaich, held on Tuesday July 21 in aid of the Armed Forces charity’s work caring for families of service personnel.

Thirteen ladies played a Stableford format where points are scored at each hole based on the player’s handicap.

With 36 points, Ailie MacBrayne was the leader in the clubhouse after the morning session, however, despite the rain drenching the two evening players, Linda Arkell played great golf, carding five pars in her total of 39 points.

Katie Cappello, after losing two off her handicap last weekend, was just one point behind Ailie.

Of the 13 who played, 10 finished with credible scores in the 30s.

Results: 1 Linda Arkell, 39 points; 2 Ailie MacBrayne, 36; 3 Katie Cappello, 35.
