Stornoway Gazette

The Stornoway Gazette is a local newspaper reporting on local issues in the Western Isles of Scotland, specifically Stornoway and the Outer Hebrides. In 2004, nine months of head-to-head competition with a rival title ended with The Hebridean ceasing publication. Following this, the Gazette acquired the title and the publication rights to The Hebridean. Johnston Press, the Edinburgh-based newspaper group, became the owner of the paper in 2004 when they bought Score Press, which had been a division of Scottish Radio Holdings. In 2013, when the Gazette was 96 years old, it was decided that it would relaunch as a compact. It was awarded 2013 Newspaper of the Year at the annual Highlands and Islands Media Awards. ()
