It was launched in 1972 as the Carrick Gazette and Girvan News, but switched to its present shorter title in 1981. It’s published by the Galloway Gazette Group, a branch of the Scotland division of Johnston Press, the UK-wide regional newspaper publishing group. As its name suggests, the Group also publishes the Galloway Gazette. The editorial offices are in Girvan.
It comes out on Thursdays.
