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.

An egg-cellent variety of entries was received when Friends of Castlehill parent-teacher association hosted an Easter egg decorating competition.

Open to children from Castlehill Primary School and Campbeltown Nursery Centre, the organisers were inundated with entries, including eggs decorating as Little Miss characters, Minions, an alien, Mr Potato Head and a gumball machine.

Amid fierce competition, the winning entries were: in the nursery and P1 category: dinosaur eggs; in the P2/3 category: bumble bee on flowers; and in the P4 to P7 category: helipad and egg-copter.

The lucky winners each received an Easter mug filled with goodies.
