Increased costs have meant that the price of the Stornoway Gazette is going up to £1.15 as from today.
However, as a reward to our loyal readers we are freezing subscription rates until the end of January, meaning you can still purchase a copy for as little as 84 pence.
The paper contiues to be right at the heart of the community, packed with news, features, events and also comprehensive sports coverage from your area.
It remains excellent value for money and will continue to do what it can to deliver an excellent product at a competitive price.
