Bigger and better than ever
It's almost September and we're putting the finishing touches to the Autumn edition of a record-breaking Black Isle Chatterbox.
The next issue will contain 48 pages of news and features, but still for the bargain price of £1.30.
We've got pages of photos from St Boniface Fair (and more to appear on our website soon) and the launch of Avoch's community skiff, the Zulu. We feature a young Munlochy sporting hero, the new chef at Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Club, Cromarty's Peace Banner, and an award-winning North Kessock historian.
Looking back, we investigate a tragic drowning, unearth two historic portraits and sail aboard the Pioneer.
You'll also discover where to find the Black Isle's secret woodland, where to go Scottish Country Dancing, the location of the area's best new tearoom, and lots more.
And there's a short story and poetry competition organised in association with Black Isle Writers... it's amazing that we were able to cram it all into 48 pages.
Take a look at the About Us page to find out where to buy Chatterbox – or how to subscribe and having it delivered to your door.
