Covid 19 Statement
Nicola Sturgeon announced to Holyrood today (15th June) that the current Covid restriction levels in operation in Scotland will not be changing and the lowest level is unlikely before mid-July.

We are still open for people to stay and for new bookings as this is within the current rules.

With the new Delta variant (first found in India) being highly transmissible, we are continuing to take all safeguards to protect guests very seriously. This includes fogging with anti viral spray between bookings.
