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 our journalists, so to get full access to all your local news updated 7-days-a-week – PLUS an e-edition of the Arran Banner – subscribe today for as little as 48 pence per week.

Forty-four brave souls took part in the eleventh Lamlash Splash, which involves a 1.3mile open water swim from Holy Isle back to Arran.

Organisers were delighted this year to see 12 local swimmers taking part – all of whom have been training for a number of months for the event.

Just after 11am the swimmers boarded the rescue boats at Lamlash Pier and were taken to Holy Isle where they were dropped off for the swim back.
