The Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald
(shortened to the Ardrossan Herald
in the website’s masthead) is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold across southern North Ayrshire
, including the Three Towns of Ardrossan, Saltcoats and Stevenston, nearby Kilwinning to the south-east, Seamill and West Kilbride further up the coast, the smaller towns of Beith, Kilbirnie and Dalry further inland in the Garnock Valley, and the Isle of Arran.
It was founded in 1853 by Arthur Guthrie. It continued to remain in the ownership of the Guthrie family until Arthur Guthrie & Sons Ltd was acquired by Fred Johnston & Sons Ltd (now Johnston Press plc). The company went into independent ownership in 1984 as West Independent Newspapers Ltd before being acquired by Clyde & Forth Press (which subsequently became Clyde & Forth Media). It’s published by Ayrshire Weekly Press, Clyde & Forth’s local subsidiary. The editorial offices are at Ayrshire Weekly Press’s local headquarters in Ardrossan.
Together with the Irvine Times and the Largs & Millport Weekly News, it forms a series of newspapers covering the whole of North Ayrshire.
It comes out on Wednesdays.
