The Scotsman Newspaper Archive

The Scotsman newspaper is based in Edinburgh. As Scotland’s national newspaper, it provides a Scottish perspective on a great number of topics, from news events to food and drink. While it began as a radical political paper in 1817, the newspaper started publishing daily in 1855 and continued to be a broadsheet newspaper up until 2004.

Our Scotsman archives hold a significant number of original newspapers dating back to the turn of the century, and show how the newspaper has changed as the years have gone on.

Two newspapers

Two newspapers, which I needed for research purposes, arrived promptly and are very useful. I keep all the clippings in a beautiful red box which I ordered with my first purchase from Historic Newspapers. As long as you have a specific date, you can order any newspaper you want; and it arrives quickly with a certificate of authentication (I keep all the certificates in my box too).
