Shinglebay Cottage COVID information
The safety of our guests and staff is a paramount for us and we are reviewing our response to the COVID-19 pandemic on a daily basis.
Please check this page for regular updates.
Now that travel is permitted and it is safe to do so within our area, we have re-opened with certain changes to the way we operate.
We encourage and facilitate social distancing as best we can. Shinglebay is a self contained and, should you choose to do so, you can avoid having contact with anyone else. To access the Lochshore you will need to walk past Seadrift B&B where we ensure we maintain social distancing.
Prior to your arrival Shinglebay Cottage will have been cleaned and prepared in accordance with the guidance from the World Health Organisation and the Association of Scottish Self Caterers. The entire cottage will have been cleaned and then disinfected. A checklist of what has been cleaned will be available for you in the cottage.
We will need your assistance and co-operation to ensure everyone’s safety and to take a few actions before and after you arrive, eg not travelling if you are symptomatic and placing your bedding and linen in black bin liners before you depart. We will provide further details nearer your arrival.
Could guests please not check in before 5pm on the day of arrival. On the day of departure could guests please check out by 9:30am at the latest so that we have the time necessary to complete the cleaning and turn around of Shinglebay Cottage.
If you do show symptoms of COVID before or during your travel to Shinglebay Cottage, could you please, where possible not, make or continue your journey. Should you need to cancel at the last minute due to COVID we would rather provide you with a full refund than disrupt the holiday plans of other guests coming to Shinglebay Cottage.
In the unlikely event that any of our guests do become unwell during their stay and have to self-isolate in the cottage, we reserve the right to cancel bookings that follow. These would of course receive a full refund, and we would endeavour, but cannot guarantee, to assist guests with finding alternative local accommodation.
Should guests have to self-isolate at Shinglebay we will do all that we reasonably can to assist, however, we shall need to charge you for the additional time that you spend at the cottage at the appropriate weekly rate.
