Scotland on Sunday is a Scottish Sunday newspaper, published in Edinburgh by The Scotsman Publications Ltd and consequently assuming the role of Sunday sister to its daily stablemate The Scotsman. It is printed in broadsheet format.
The paper was recently relaunched, with the addition of The Week supplement which replaced the Review magazine. The Week incorporates insight and opinion, with contributions from leading commentators on politics, music, and culture. This brings together the total number of sections to 5; along with the news section, sport and the Spectrum and At Home magazines.
Scotland on Sunday was launched on 7 August 1988 and was priced at 40p.
Ultimate ownership of Scotland on Sunday has changed several times since launch. The Scotsman Publications Limited, which also produces The Scotsman, Edinburgh Evening News and the Herald & Post series of free newspapers in Edinburgh, Fife, West Lothian and Perth, was bought by the Canadian millionaire Roy Thomson in 1953.
In 1995, the group was sold to the billionaire Barclay Brothers for £85 million. They moved the group from its landmark Edinburgh office on North Bridge, which is now an upmarket hotel, to new offices in Holyrood Road, near where the Scottish Parliament Building was subsequently built. Then in December 2005 the paper, along with the other Scotsman Publications titles, was sold to Edinburgh based newspaper group Johnston Press in a £160 million deal.
