Coronavirus situation in Scotland
On 22nd March 2020, Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon asked all hotels, B&Bs and self-catering accommodation in Scotland to stop accepting visitors for the foreseeable future. On 23rd March, the Scottish and UK Governments both announced measures for an effective lockdown across the country, requesting everyone to stay at home. Please read the Government's conditions.
Under the current circumstances, please do not travel to Scotland for a holiday. This puts everyone at risk including the communities you may be visiting and could put additional pressure on local health service providers and food suppliers. Scottish Government ministers and VisitScotland (the official tourist board) have asked people not to come to Scotland at this time in a misguided attempt to 'escape' the Coronavirus.
Tourist attractions, tourist information centres, restaurants, cafes, non-essential shops theatres, cinemas, libraries and sports centres have closed their doors to the public. Public transport has been reduced.
Scotland's people have always been resilient, resourceful and creative. These assets have seen us through many challenges and we are sure we will all get through this challenging time if we can all work together.
Scotland will still be here for you in the future and we look forward to welcoming you back when travel restrictions are lifted and holidays can resume. In many areas of the Scotland, tourism is the lifeblood of the economy, so you will be helping whole communities by planning your visit at a future date. Many of our B&Bs also help to support other local businesses by sourcing produce from local farmers, butchers and other food suppliers.

For medical advice if you are experiencing any symptoms of Coronavirus, please consult the NHS website.
The hospitality of the Scottish people is legendary, but at this challenging time, we would prefer everyone to stay safe and stay at home.
We hope you will choose to support our local businesses and look forward to welcoming you to Scotland when it is safe for us all to do so in the future.
