Our hospitality operators have been very busy preparing for tourism starting up again since the Scottish Government announcement of key dates. Physical distancing of 2 metres continues to be required in Scotland (with some exemptions) and the use of face coverings in all shops and on public transport is mandatory.

We want you to enjoy the best of what East Kintyre has to offer but we would ask you to do so safely, and with the utmost respect to our community. The area has done exceptionally well in shielding itself from Covid-19 and with your help when visiting, by following the guidelines, not only will you have a fabulous holiday, we will welcome you with open arms (at a 2m distance!)!  For full up to date guidance please check the Scottish Government Website.

Explore Kintyre & Gigha with over 80 members has published a "Charter" for re-opening the tourism and hospitality sector.  This charter sets out the measures being taken to ensure a safe re-opening of the sector. The charter will be promoted amongst the members of Kintyre and Gigha and forms a contract with the people and communities of Kintyre.

Look out for the ‘We’re Good To Go’ industry standard and supporting mark.

This means businesses across all sectors of the tourism industry in Scotland can demonstrate that they're adhering to the respective government and public health guidance, and have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment to check they have the required processes and protocols in place.
