Covid Statement

The Scottish Government has set the provisional dates of 3rd July for self contained self-catering and the 6th July for outdoor hospitality and 15th July 2020 for the rest of tourism to reopen and accommodation can now be booked, on the understanding that the date may change. All our businesses are working through a strict set of guidelines to put into place the necessary procedures and protocols to ensure we can open with the safely our community and visitors in mind.

Most of our distilleries are open and are looking forward to seeing you. Our wide-open spaces, our unspoilt beaches and our coastal walks are still here too with so many fun adventures awaiting you!

We are all in this together and by following the published guidelines we can stop the virus spreading and keep each other safe by maintaining social distancing, wearing face coverings in enclosed spaces and public transport, and ensuring good hand hygiene.

The Scottish Government has issued guidance to visitors which can be found here
Our shops, cafés, restaurants, pubs and visitor attractions will have their own systems for meeting the guidelines and this may involve queuing, contactless payments, pre-booking and arranging for take-away or delivery service.

Our ferry service has a slightly reduced capacity and indeed a different form of booking with the 14 day system however this may change soon allowing more longer planning easier. Please speak to your accommodation provider as they may be able to help with advice on booking the ferry and may be more flexible over their cancellation policy. Loganair are also still flying from Glasgow and is a beautiful short flight. Both Calmac and Loganair are working in line with government guidelines and are both increasing capacity and numeracy of flights and sailings where possible and safe to do so and communicate this on their websites.

We look forward to welcoming you to Islay and Jura in 2020, but ‘at a distance’ this year!
