As the COVID 19 outbreak continues to develop, the health and safety of our guests and to ourselves are our top priority so thorough procedures are in place to help protect us all.
In keeping with the Scottish Government guidelines, we will remain cautious and adhere to these guidelines and hygiene procedures until this crisis is over. Therefore, our holiday bookings will have to be very different this year.
We now must introduce a gap between each booking to provide ample time to properly clean, disinfect and prepare each cottage. These booking buffers aim to reduce the risk of potential exposure to the coronavirus, and with that in mind we have made the decision to change the weekly bookings to check in on Sunday after 4pm and check out will be the following Saturday no later than 10.00am.
