Scotland is currently under temporary lockdown and in level 4, though the Small Isles are in level 3. This means everyone in level 4 by law can only leave home for an essential purpose.

Please Stay Home, Stay Safe and Help Protect the NHS and our rural community.
From 2nd April 2021 - The stay at home measures becomes stay local - travel within local authority for non-essential purpose will be allowed.
Timetable for easing restrictions - indicative dates are conditional of supportive data.
The date for reopening for tourism accommodation is expected to be 26th April 2021. All businesses are expected to operate in compliance with COVID-19 tourism and hospitality guidance.
This date will also see the removal of travel restrictions, permitting travel within all mainland Scotland (subject to other restrictions that remain in place). All indicative dates are dependant on the continued suppression of the virus set out in the Scottish Government - COVID-19: timetable for easing restrictions.
