**Covid 19 Update 21/05/2020**

The latest update from the Scottish Government remains ‘stay at home’ and does not currently have a timeline for when this will be eased. The timeline in England suggests that lockdown measures may be eased no earlier than 1st July, subject to tests being met. Therefore, in line with government guidelines we do not expect guests to be allowed to travel and stay with us until at least after 1st July 2020.

*Bookings up until 1st July*

If you have a booking during this time you may be able to reschedule your stay for a later date. As this is an ever evolving situation the option to reschedule your booking will remain open wherever possible, however it will be subject to availability. If you would like to arrange provisional dates please contact us on thewesthighlandwaysleeper@gmail.com

*Bookings after 1st July*

Subject to further government announcements these bookings remain in place. We will provide updates if the situation changes.

Please note: We do not have the financial resources to allow us to provide refunds to our guests at this time. We have seen a dramatic reduction in bookings this year due to the pandemic which has meant our annual outlay on repairs, restoration and upkeep of the property that are required to allow us to welcome guests this season have not been recouped. In addition, our business insurance has confirmed that they will not pay out despite the fact that we have taken out additional cover for situations such as these, this is a common issue with insurance companies, see article here. We therefore kindly ask that you consider rearranging your booking dates with us.

These are unprecedented and challenging times for all. We ask that you please bear with us while we try our best as a small business to navigate through it.

We wish you well and hope to welcome you soon.
