It was founded in 1866 in Thurso. It’s closely associated with the slightly larger-circulation John O’Groat Journal, which like it is published by North of Scotland Newspapers (a trading name of Inverness-based Scottish Provincial Press Ltd).
It shares a website with the Groat. Both titles’ main editorial offices are in Wick.
It comes out on Wednesdays. An e-edition’s also available by paid subscription.
