Covid 19 update

May 25, 2020

We look forward to the current restrictions being eased in time for people to be able to enjoy the summer but are conscious that potential guests may be nervous about booking in case restrictions are re-imposed. We advise all guests to take travel insurance, but we have made the following changes to our booking terms and conditions to make things easier 


  • Our booking calendar is open from July 1st which is the best estimate of when travel and holidays will be allowed. We will keep this under constant review and amend if any new guidance appears
  • The due date for payment balances has been reduced to 4 weeks prior to arrival date

In the following circumstances we will refund all payments made on bookings through the cottage website, less any credit/debit card charges levied on us. 

  • The Scottish Government decide that certain holiday accommodation has to close, and Loch Cottage is included in that category
  • The Scottish and/or English Governments impose travel restrictions that would prevent guests from travelling from their home to the cottage
  • If preferred, we are happy to move the booking to a later date rather than cancelling it. The price would be adjusted either way if the new booking dates fall into a different pricing period

In addition to our normal stringent cleaning procedures, all hard surfaces will be cleaned with appropriate disinfecting liquid, including door handles, taps etc. We hope this will reassure our guests but please do not hesitate to get in contact with us if you have any questions or concerns.

With the national park on the doorstep, you can 'self isolate' while still enjoying the outdoors and the cottage is well separated from neighbours with its own driveway so it is easy to stay well clear of other people. When you are not out and about you can settle into the cottage with high speed internet, and a smart TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime apps to while away the time with films and series. Tesco will deliver to the door, although as this is written it is a challenge to get a slot

Stay safe, and we look forward to something slightly closer to normal life being restored
