Scotland on Sunday planning tabloid switch

By Darren Boyle

Scotland on Sunday is planning to relaunch as a tabloid according to tweets from the paper’s deputy editor Kenny Farquharson.

A message from 10 January reveals: “SoS redesign for us going tabloid – er, I mean compact – is looking fab.”

When asked about the timing if the switch, Farquharson said “soon”.

Scotland on Sunday’s sister paper The Scotsman went tabloid in 2004.

In March 2013 the Scotsman and Scotsman on Sunday asked to be included in the six-monthly regional ABC report and not the monthly national figures.

Scotland on Sunday (which costs £2.10) had an average circulation of 37,407 in the first six months of 2013 compared with more than 50,000 in 2011.
