We’re Scotland’s leading broadsheet. Each day, our teams of specialist writers, columnists and experts explore in depth the challenges Scotland faces.

Now, The Herald is offering discounted rates on our monthly and annual Premium Plus subscriptions.

While many readers are already part of our digital family, we want to keep growing that number.

You can now sign up for a month-long subscription to The Herald for just £1 – and if you like what you’re seeing, you can stay with us for £9.99 a month.

On our annual offer, you can currently save more than 50%, paying just £57 for the first year and then £114.99 after.


And there’s no better time to sign up, with the launch of The Herald’s major new series on Scotland’s Future this week.

First up, we will look at the country’s relationship with the European Union. As the year progresses, we will look at oil and gas, transport, health, social care and defence and more.

These will be in-depth pieces from respected voices, beyond the usual hit and run of the news cycle, because we see part of our mission as giving the nation the space to debate these important issues.

We will also be hosting a virtual roundtable discussion for subscribers with Brian Taylor. It will be your chance to quiz the experts.

But that’s just the start. Each day, our teams of specialist writers, columnists and experts explore in depth the challenges Scotland faces. We are not here to tell you what to think, or to push a political agenda. We are not tied to any party or position. We are here to provide a platform for honest, sometimes passionate, debate.

Our politics teams, led by Tom Gordon in Holyrood, and Hannah Rodger in Westminster, give you unrivalled insight into what our elected representatives are up to – and why. On health, Helen McArdle explains what the blizzard of figures around Covid means and we lead the way on coverage of education, business and sport.


Every day, our columnists, such as Mark Smith, Kevin McKenna, Iain Macwhirter and Rebecca McQuillan bring you views from across the political spectrum.

A subscription gives you full access to heraldscotland.com which is updated all day long with breaking news. It also allows you to enjoy our weekend Herald Magazine, packed with set-piece interviews and features, Alison Rowat's TV critique, Dave Allan's gardening pages and Ron Mackenna's restaurant reviews.

With a subscription, you’ll have an advert-light experience on our website and unlimited access to all our stories, including premium articles.

You can also access our daily digital edition, a digital replica of the newspaper, including the Herald on Sunday and our Business HQ, Best of Scotland, Scottish Gardener, Scottish Mountaineer and Scottish Walks and Cycling magazines.

  • Our Premium subscription
