To put your minds at rest in accordance with the Scottish Tourist Organisation, we are “Good to Go” having achieved the Covid-19 Industry Standard.
All rooms will be deep cleaned before arrival including soft furnishings. We always aim to clean at a very high standard, however we will also be introducing a sanitising spray and UV light sterilizer to ensure that all surfaces that you come in to contact with will be clean and virus free.
Prior to you arriving, if you or anybody in your party are feeling unwell (with any of the coronavirus symptoms) please cancel your booking. Unfortunately we will not be able to allow entry to our guest house if you are unwell.
Please note, we will be unable to allow early access to our premises because of the amplified cleaning procedure’s we have put in place, check in is from 17:00.
On arrival please use the hand sanitiser on entry. If possible please wear a face covering until in the privacy of your room. Temperatures will be taken via a non-invasive infrared thermometer, unfortunately if a high temperature is recorded you will not be admitted into the Guest House, this will be enforced to ensure your and our safety.

Hand sanitiser will be placed throughout the property for you to use.
You will be provided with your key in a bag at reception (this will have been sanitised), instructions to find your room will be given (unfortunately due to current guidelines we will be unable to escort you into your room). However we can answer any questions about your room from outside your room.
