The Scots Independent Newspaper
February 2006 Issue

I have thought for some time now that I should place a copy of one issue of the Scots Independent Newspaper on the site as a kind of historical marker.  The editor for this issue is Jim Lynch. As the paper is too large for me to scan in I photographed each page with my digital camera and while not crisp and clean like the actual newspaper I do think it is readable. The graphics are of course quite large so you can read the text.

The Scots Independent have their own web site at The newspaper is the oldest political newspaper in Scotland seeing its first issue printed in 1926. I understand that archives of the newspaper are held at Aberdeen University, Scotland.
