Scotland on Sunday has appointed a new senior reporter as part of the paper's investment in editorial staff.
Marc Horne joins the paper after two years working for The Sunday Times.
He will now be reunited with his former editor at The Sunday Times, Les Snowdon.
Snowdon, now editor of Scotland on Sunday, said: "Marc is the best young story-getter in Scotland and is joining a hugely talented news team.
"He is the latest of three very exciting new recruits who will help Scotland on Sunday continue to set the agenda in Scotland."
The other two new additions to the editorial team of the Johnston Press-owned title are political journalist Kenny Farquharson and Richard Elias.
Farquharson has returned to the paper as assistant editor after working at the Daily Record and The Sunday Times.
Joining him on the news team is Elias, Scottish reporter of the year in 2006.
Scotland on Sunday now features three magazines with the recently launched arts and entertainment magazine, Review.
