When it was launched in 1817 by lawyer William Ritchie and customs official Charles Maclaren, it was then a weekly newspaper. At the time, it ambitioned to be a liberal paper to balance what they termed the “unblushing subservience” of the rival newspapers towards the establishment of Edinburgh.
Its format is called “compact” which is a mix between a tabloid and broadsheet format designed to be easier to read while using public transportation.
