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. Thanks you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time

MOJO 2018 is fast approaching – with eight weeks to go until the big music showcase in Craignish Village Hall, Ardfern.
If all you music makers, shakers and fans cannot wait until Saturday October 20, check out the MOJO Facebook page for demos, more information on each of the acts and their individual social media accounts.
The Brambelles, Kirsteen Black from Colintraive and Alana Mathers from Glendaruel, had already been involved in singing together in their local choir, so were well aquainted with each other before deciding to start their band in 2016.
Initially covering classics, they used their skill in harmonies from the choir and with Alana’s added guitar playing, they almost immediately started playing at big festivals like Fyne Fest, Mama Fest and Best of the West Fest along with many other local events and fundraising gigs where they have always been well received.
From 2018 they started creating their own material, leading to their first original act at MOJO in October.
Having influences like Bonnie Raitt, Bob Dylan and the band First Aid Kit, their music style delivers a central core of country with pop and light rock throughout.
With complementing lush harmonies and beautifully flowing lyrics, they draw the listener in close for a delightful music experience.
The Brambelles hope in the future is for lots more gigging and to work on recording their first album, so watch out for it.
