We will carry out extra cleaning as per the very detailed protocol from the Scottish Government. I have completed the recommended cleaning/ disinfection training as recommended by ASSC. We will be closed for a night between guests, to let the cottage ’air’ and to allow me time to carry out the extra cleaning. This has already been blocked out. The laundry room with the washing machine and tumble drier, books and games will be closed to guests until we are advised that it can be opened. Please let me know if you would like to borrow a specific game for the duration of your stay. Please ask me for more clarification.
