A warm welcome to HeraldScotland,

If you're a regular visitor you'll notice a few changes; more contributors, improved layout, a new politics section and subscription! But don't panic you can still read up to 10 articles a month for free, we're just asking those of you who particularly enjoy our content to pay the small sum of £2.99 for 4 weeks access, just 11 pence a day.

We think that's tremendous value, value that will only be enhanced as we add sections and features to the site, bringing you more and more quality journalism by Scots and for Scots. Our ambition is simple: to provide the best and most comprehensive digital experience for anyone interested in what's happening in Scotland.

We've got lots of plans in the pipeline but I'd be delighted to hear what you think we should be doing. Email me at HeraldScotlandCustomerService@heraldandtimes.co.uk.
