We love welcoming visitors to our beautiful corner of Scotland. In the context of COVID-19 pandemic, it is vitally important for the protection of all that we do that as safely as possible.

Tourism businesses across our region are working hard to put in place the necessary processes to keep you safe.

So we ask all visitors planning to come to the region to also play your part.

Please plan ahead, many businesses, attractions, outlets etc may not be open or have changed their opening hours, they may be limiting access or limiting group sizes etc, so please reach out to them ahead of your visit and check that they are opening and can accommodate you.

Please protect yourself and others by being considerate to local communities and following the Scottish Government guidelines which are there to keep us all safe.
