Scot-Ads began in December 1994. In those days, we had one publication in north Scotland, and ambitions of changing the way Scots bought and sold to each other.
We've now grown to cover almost the entire country, offering a great service to Scots keen for a bargain and a simple way to buy and sell, whether they're a business or private individual. We're now number one in Scotland.
There are three editions of Scot-Ads each week: the North Edition (published twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays) and the South Edition which now covers the Tayside, Fife, Midlothian and Strathclyde areas, and is on sale every Friday.
We also offer you the ability to 'double your chance', by buying and selling online as well as through the paper.
- Sell over 20,000 papers a week: more than any other specialist weekly title.
- Handle over 22,000 ads every week.
- Have over 300 categories, covering everything from secondhand baby equipment to houses.
- Attract around 30,000 visitors a month to our website.
We've also become known as the place to buy and sell cars. Each paper carries a Scot-Cars pullout, full of cars, vans, 4x4s, commercials and motorbikes for sale, as well as spares and accessories. As well as private adverts, many dealers have found Scot-Cars the ideal way to promote their business.
