COVID-19 Information

On Monday 14th September, the Scottish Government introduced a new gathering limit of six people from two households either indoors or outdoors.  As this new ruling applies to our walking tours this means that no single booking can be taken for more than 6 people (max of 2 households). Children under 12 from within the two households will not be counted in the new limit of six people.

We will continue to offer a public outdoor walking tour at 7:00pm on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, with a limited headcount to permit physical distancing.

Our wee shop remains open Tuesday-Sunday, 12noon - 6pm, with appropriate physical distancing and sanitary safeguards in place.

See the relevant sections on our homepage, and our Tour Booking page, for full details.
