Strathspey & Badenoch Herald

The Strathspey & Badenoch Herald – known colloquially as the “Strathy” – is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the district of Badenoch and Strathspey in the Highland council area in northern Scotland, an area which stretches broadly along the valley of the River Spey from Dalwhinnie and Laggan through Kingussie, Aviemore and Grantown-on-Spey to Rothes, Aberlour and Dufftown in neighbouring Moray.

Its history dates back to 1902 with the publication of its earliest ancestor, the Kingussie Record. It’s published by Moray and Nairn Newspapers, a division of Inverness-based Scottish Provincial Press. The editorial offices are in Grantown-on-Spey, with a local office in Kingussie for Badenoch.

It switched from broadsheet to “compact” (ie tabloid) format in May 2012. It shifted publication time from Wednesday morning to Thursday morning at the same time.

An e-edition’s available by paid subscription.
