Covid-19 update, 9 July 2020
Scotland is now in Phase 3 of exiting lockdown which means that all tourism businesses will be able to reopen on 15th July 2020. This includes accommodation, pubs, restaurants, etc.
Please be assured that when our B&Bs re-open, we will be implementing all the hygiene, cleaning and social distancing measures required to keep our guests and B&B owners safe.
Please note that this information may be different to the situation in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Some tourist attractions such as castles and museums will be open from mid July with social distancing measures in operation, but please check in advance with any specific places you wish to visit. Many attractions may require pre-booking of time slots, and some might not re-open until 2021.
Unfortunately many large events including Highland Games for 2020 have been cancelled. Please check with individual event operators before travelling to attend events.
