Am Paipear

An Am Pàipear subscription: The perfect Uist gift!

In 2023 Am Pàipear has grown the news team by taking on two Community Reporters and we’re ending the year shortlisted for an award from the Highlands and Islands Media Awards!

In 2024 there will be more digital content coming to our website, even more of a commitment to Gaelic language and culture and more of the high quality news we pride ourselves on.

But before we get to 2024, if you are still looking for a gift for someone with a passion for local news, culture and Gaelic and would like to support Uist’s local newspaper, look no further than an Am Pàipear subscription!

For just £40 (or £50 for international postage) you will get a whole year of Am Pàipear directly through your letterbox as well as access to the website and digital content. The digital only subscription is only £20 a year and you’ll get all of the most important local news straight to your inbox each month.

This is your last chance to get Am Pàipear at the 2023 subscription price so don’t wait too long!

Am Pàipear has been serving the Southern Isles since 1976 and in that time has won the Highlands and Islands Media Awards Community Newspaper of the Year numerous times as well as the award for Best Use of Digital Media and Young Journalist of the Year.

This year we have added a dedicated Gaelic reporter to our team and we have been shortlisted for Campaign of the Year for our coverage of the ferry situation in Uist. 

With ever growing concern for these important aspects of our lives in Uist it has never been more important to support your local newspaper and all the work it does to inform and support the community.

You can become a subscriber by visiting our website or getting in touch via You can also gift a subscription to anyone you know worldwide who has Uist connections and would like to keep in touch with the islands.

We look forward to bringing you more in 2024 and wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

From all the team at Am Pàipear
