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.

Name the historic location!

The Courier is putting readers’ knowledge and attention to detail to the test again by asking who can name another historic location based on small details from the site.

In the past, eagle-eyed readers have identified some of Campbeltown’s most iconic buildings, as well as sites a little more remote. This week, these photographs were all taken at one specific location in Kintyre.

Do you recognise the features? Can you name the location? See next week’s Courier to find out if you are correct.
