❗Booking during 2020 COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic❗
(updated 17 June 2020)

We are gutted* (see translations below) that we’ve not been able to welcome visitors this spring. Sadly, the weather has been braw* while Kilbride Cottage remains closed in line with Scottish Government advice to

At the moment, it’s not clear when it will be safe to travel again.
All Scottish holiday accommodation is (by law) currently closed. In Phase 3 of the Scottish lockdown exit plan, travel restrictions in Scotland begin to ease (currently restricted to 5 miles). Holiday accommodation may be able to re-open at that time. We will potentially enter Phase 3 on 15th July.
Please note: any international visitors entering the UK MUST self-isolate/quarantine for 14 days.

2020 – please contact us BEFORE making a 2020 booking.
2021 – we are open for bookings in 2021.
And don’t worry – if you book a stay for either year, and then can’t travel because of COVID-19 government restrictions, we’ll transfer your booking to a future available date or give you a full refund.

So, until you can visit in person…. why not take a virtual dauner* round the cottage on our website? And have a look at the many great things to see and do in the area.
