The Villagers

The community newspaper of Balquhidder, Strathyre, Lochearnhead & St Fillan's


We’ve been planning to take the Villagers online for some time. As of this week (March 24 2020), we have of course lost the facility to print and distribute the paper, for the immediately foreseeable future.

So here then is our contribution to fighting the tedium of Covid-19 lockdown: the last year’s worth of issues of The Villagers, in a form that you can browse like a book, download as a PDF or, indeed, print off if you feel the urge.

Yes, The Villagers is a paid publication, and we’ll be implementing a paid-for online version as soon as normal service is resumed. We’ll also be making sure that our existing subscribers and advertisers don’t lose out as a result of the current crisis. But, right now, here, in all its award-winning glory, is The Villagers.
