All about the United Kingdom’s national, regional and local press

The Edinburgh Gazette

The Edinburgh Gazette is the Official Newspaper of Record for Scotland, and is published twice weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays. Despite the title, it’s not like most newspapers as its content consists of legal and official announcements from HM Government, the Scottish Government, the Parliaments at Westminster and Holyrood, the Armed Forces, local authorities, churches, companies and private citizens.

It was founded in 1699, eight years before the Act of Union, but was produced sporadically until 1793, since when it’s been published continuously.

It’s published by TSO on behalf of Her Majesty’s Stationery Office, from offices in Edinburgh. It’s one of a series of Gazettes for the whole United Kingdom; The Belfast Gazette and The London Gazette perform the same function for Northern Ireland and England & Wales respectively. Since early 2014 all editions have shared a common website under the branding The Gazette.
