Am Pàipear is a community newspaper based on the Isle of Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland.
Published at the beginning of every month and covering news and sport from the Uist island-chain – spanning from Berneray to Eriskay – Am Pàipear is a high-quality, diverse and modern newspaper.
Still based in the community in which it was established in 1976, Am Pàipear has a strong reputation for thorough, impartial journalism and across-the-board coverage of news and events in the islands.
Continually enjoying exceptionally high sales – approximately one copy is sold for every two individuals in its area – the paper is very much a part of life and culture in its locality.
In addition to being much enjoyed by its readership, Am Pàipear is also widely respected by colleagues in the industry. It is a record five-time winner of the title ‘Highlands and Islands Community Newspaper of the Year’, most recently collecting the award in 2014.
