    Scot-Ads was launched in December 1994, with the aim of changing the way Scots bought and sold to each other. Since then, Scot-Ads has grown to cover almost the entire country, offering a great service to those looking for a simple way to buy and sell, and secure a bargain. We also offer you the ability to ‘double your chance’, by buying and selling online as well as through the paper. We’re now number one in Scotland.

    There are two editions of Scot-Ads each week: the North edition (published twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays) and the South edition (published on Friday and covering Tayside, Fife, Midlothian and Strathclyde).

    Scot-Ads sells over 20,000 papers a week: more than any other specialist weekly title; handles over 22,000 ads every week; has over 300 categories, covering everything from second-hand baby equipment to houses and attracts 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 pull-out, 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 is the ideal way to promote their business.
