Are you sick and tired of the daily Tory sleaze and Unionist nonsense that comes with the current UK Government? Us too. 

Fear not, because as Scotland's ONLY paper that supports independence, The National is here to bring you all the very latest in the world of politics, unveiling everything "lightweight leader" Douglas Ross and hypocritical Murdo Fraser (cheeky trip to Seville, anyone?) don't want you to know...

And now, you can get all of our stories STRAIGHT TO YOUR PHONE AND TABLET with our brand new app, enjoying an AD-FREE experience! 

What's more, we are offering you a 30-day free trial for our Premium Plus subscription if you subscribe NOW. 

That means that you can keep up to date with the "grubby" Better Together local council deals and the movements of First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, which may go amiss elsewhere, ahem. 

Don't worry though, it's not all hardcore politics – we also work hard to provide your daily dose of Scottish Tory rage – they make it pretty easy – to give you a laugh or two on your lunch break. 

While utter incompetence from a certain Westminster government could easily fill a paper, we have SO MUCH MORE.

We are the go-to place for lovers of all things Scotland, so alongside news from around the world, you can get deep-dives into Scottish history, culture and local stories at the touch of a button! 

Premium Plus users have full access to the ad-free app including the ability to cater content to the topics you prefer through topic selector and you can save, download and share content.

National editor Callum Baird said: “We’re really proud of our reporting – from the effect of Brexit on businesses to the latest from communities up and down Scotland.

“We’ve also got Scotland’s top range of columnists, whose analysis is a key companion to a busy year for the country and for independence.

“There’s so much more, too, which is why we’re offering this 30-day free trial – we’d love to see more people joining The National family as we move towards an independent Scotland.”
