The leading voice on the ferries scandal

We are a proud home to the journalist who broke the story of the ferries scandal. As islanders struggle for fair and accessible transportation, Martin Williams has been there every step revealing what’s going on behind the scenes. We are the leading source on the issue with most of our ferries coverage being exclusive, breaking the stories where other titles follow.

A closer look at the Covid inquiry

The Herald has one of the few health correspondents left in Scotland, with Helen McArdle going beyond the headlines typically seen in other publications. In between reporting on the health service, standing up for those on the frontlines, and providing hard-hitting data-driven analysis, our health correspondent also follows developing stories such as the Scottish and UK Covid inquiries.

Diving deep into education reports

Since education writer James McEnaney joined The Herald, we have advocated for a fairer and more solutions-based perspective on Scottish education. Part of that is breaking down reports, revealing the true state of education beyond the spin. We closely covered the EIS report on the scale of violence in Scottish schools, speaking to teachers about their experiences, and examining information for lessons to learn so Scotland's education can be pushed to be the best it can be.

The Herald:

The rising mortalities on salmon farms

Beyond her extensive coverage of environmental issues, writer and reporter Vicky Allan also covers the ecological concerns with Scotland's production and manufacturing. One such case is the ongoing story of rising mortalities in salmon farms. Ms Allan not only presents new information on the issue but gives a nuanced analysis, illuminating the truths behind Scotland's interactions with the planet.

Covering every step of Scotland's 'most notorious road'

The saga of the landslide-prone Rest and Be Thankful road has been covered step by step by The Herald. It reveals and magnifies the grander problems of Scotland's infrastructure, with The Herald often being the first to report new developments on Scotland's 'most notorious road'.

The regeneration of our cities

The regeneration of our cities is a topic often reported on by The Herald, including the so-called Golden Z regeneration of Glasgow's city centre. With a keen eye on the past, present, and future of Scotland's regeneration projects, we offer exclusives and analysis from our reporters and business team, and publish expert perspectives from Glasgow Chamber of Commerce and beyond.
