The infection rate in Dumfries & Galloway has been very low throughout the pandemic and we have NOT had the Corona virus. In accordance with Scottish government rules and guidelines for the protection of guests and ourselves we have introduced the following safety procedures. Amendments will be made when any rules change, we will also advise guests of these changes if they occur before their arrival date. With Helen’s part time job as a home care assistant we have made ever effort to protect her so she can protect the people she cares for. To make sure this continues we have added our own specific rules which may be even more strict than you might expect

Scottish Rules may differ

There is a possibility that Scotland has different rules from those you are used to. To ensure you know the rules we will email a link to Scottish regulations in addition you will be reminded of the rules here when you arrive.

Self Isolating from Holiday or Visiting from Abroad

not require to self isolation - this list can be found at HERE

on this list we require that you will have been in the UK for at least 7 days before visiting.

2 Under no circumstance are you allowed to visit if you are in a 14 day self isolation period.

If you become infected before, during or after a visit

To ensure our protection please postpone your booking if you develop virus symptoms (no

matter how mild) or you are in a self isolation period which ends sooner than 2 weeks prior to

the date of your arrival. You will not lose any deposit paid.

It is very important that if you have had the virus that you are absolutely sure you are

completely free of it before visiting us.

so we can arrange tests.

If you develop virus symptoms (no matter how mild) within 7 days of returning home please

advise us as soon as possible preferably by phone so we can arrange tests.

As you have been doing for the past months please regularly wash your hands for 20 seconds.

While we will do our best to maintain a 2m separation from guests this is also dependent on

your co-operation too.

more than one person is staying.
