We understand that everyone is concerned about Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the impact it is having globally as well as within the United Kingdom. Islands & Highlands Cottages share the same concerns.
Due to the restrictions put into place by the Scottish and UK Government, and the requirement for all non vital businesses to close, the holiday cottages have been closed with the exception of housing NHS staff and other key workers.
The Scottish Government has indicated that they are aiming to being the easing of restrictions from the 3rd July 2020 for self-catering holiday cottages.
We are working alongside our cottage owners and housekeepers to ensure the new cleaning guidelines which have been issued will be adhered to. Islands & Highlands Cottages will continue to monitor the restrictions and recommendations that are being made by the Scottish and UK Governments and we will follow their guidance. Only when we have confirmation all guidelines can be followed, will we start to reopen the holiday cottages.
Self-catering holiday cottages offer a safe environment for guests to stay; where contact with others can be kept to a minimum and each family can interact freely within the grounds of the property.
It is only by adhering to the restrictions in place at any given time, that we can all enjoy some of the things we once took for granted. We hope that when we are able to reopen, all of our guests will follow and respect the instructions left at the holiday cottage as well as follow the governmental guidance in force whilst exploring Lochalsh and the Isle of Skye.
For existing bookings due to arrive after the 3rd July, our hope is that these bookings will be able to go ahead. We will be in touch with guests as soon as we can to confirm either way.
We look forward to offering a very warm welcome to all of our guests soon.
