Covid - 19 Information For Guests

We are so happy to start to be putting measures in place for when we are able to welcome guests back to the Potting Shed. Whilst we do not know exactly when we will be allowed to open our doors again to guests, indications are that currently the provisional re-opening date for the Scottish tourism and hospitality sector is 15th July. The safety and well being of our guests and our local community is incredibly important to us and we want to reassure guests that we are in the process of putting measures in place to help guests minimise any risks to both yourselves and to the local community.

We have signed up to Sawday’s “Clean and Safe Charter”. This means that we will:


  • Follow government cleaning advice for non- healthcare environments – all high touch, hard surfaces will be cleaned twice and disinfected, and all linen will be washed at the hottest water setting.

  • Self -check in and social distancing – The key will be sterilised before arrival and we will let you know where to find it. The rural location of the Potting Shed means that social distancing is the norm! Usually we pop down to welcome guests but to respect social distancing we will not be doing this until it is safe to do so. We will still be here if you need anything, please just text or phone us.

  • Measures will be put in place to allow guests to practice good hygiene throughout their stay – We have ample supplies of disinfectant, cleaning supplies, hand sanitisers and soap.

Further details of the measures we will put in place will be sent out to guests as part of their pre-arrival information.


We want you to feel safe and be reassured that we have played our part to minimise risk for our guests. If you have any queries or would like to discuss any thing with us please do not hesitate to get in touch.

For any bookings that have had to be cancelled as a result of Covid-19 we have given a full refund or guests have moved their bookings. This will remain our policy going forward.

Thank you to all our lovely guests who have been so supportive and understanding, it is very much appreciated.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back soon.
