Caledonian Mercury was the name of a Scottish newspaper, published three times a week between 1720–1867.[1] Numbers published from 1800 on are available online for registered users of the National Library of Scotland website.

Currently it is a Scottish online newspaper taking its name after its printed predecessor and the even earlier Mercurius Caledonius (1660–1661).[2][3] Set up by Stewart Kirkpatrick, formerly (2000–2007) responsible for The Scotsman webpage, and launched late at night on 24 January 2010, it is supposed to "rarely cover breaking news, concentrating on analytical, discursive reporting".[4]
