MERRY Christmas from 'The Northern Scot'.
Moray's award-winning newspaper would like to wish all readers, and contributors good wishes for a great day.
'Scot' editor Mike Collins said: "It has been another busy year in 2013 and we have done our best to reflect what has been happening locally.
"As we look ahead to what promises to be an exciting year in 2014 locally and nationally, we hope everybody has a great Christmas."
'The Scot' print version will be out as usual on Friday.
