UPDATE 22/09/20

As you will know, the Scottish Government announced that they have extended the restrictions to no more than one private household meeting indoors. Taking direction from the Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers, we are delighted to confirm that they have legal assurances from the Scottish Government that six adults from up to two households are still able to travel and stay in self catering accommodation, with children under 12 years old, remaining exempt from social distancing regulations, because our lodges are deemed to be a commercial accommodation business.
 
We are taking the Coronavirus very seriously and the Scottish Government have recognised that the risk assessments carried out and the new procedures put in place, allow us to continue to offer a safe location for two households to holiday together. 
 
With this in mind, if your booking is for a maximum of six adults from two households (excluding any children under 12 years old) please be assured that your booking will remain the same.

If your booking falls outside these regulations, please contact us as soon as possible to discuss the available options at [email protected]
