The Sunday Mail is a Scottish tabloid newspaper published every Sunday. It is the sister paper of the Daily Record and is owned by Trinity Mirror.


The newspaper places a strong emphasis on family values and it is well-known for its campaigning journalism and hard-hitting investigations.

In September 1999, when Editor Jim Cassidy was sacked, the paper's circulation was 767,000. Its nearest rival was the Scottish edition of the News of the World which sold around 350,000 copies at that time.[1]

As of December 2016, the Sunday Mail had a circulation of 172,513.[2]

As of February 2017, the circulation was 166,195[3]

As of April 2017, the circulation was 159,880 [4]

As of July 2017, the circulation was 152,892 [5]

It should not be confused with The Mail on Sunday; the Daily Mail was unable to use the title Sunday Mail when it launched a Sunday edition in 1982 because of the Scottish paper.
