Following the government announcements today 13/4/21 Islay has been given the go ahead to start opening up to visitors. So bookings will be taken from 26/4/21. Obviously we have some existing bookings but please do get in touch and see if we have any vacancies. We will follow all the guidelines and will be cleaning with a natural bleach between guests. Islay is slowly reopening although some restaurants and distilleries are operating differently than previously so if you are expecting to visit your favourite haunts it is best to check they have opened before you come!
We just ask all visitors adhere to the current Scottish government guidelines and not to travel if they are unwell or are experiencing any signs and symptoms of the virus. If you were to develop symptoms during your stay we ask that you inform us immediately and we will seek professional help for you.
Bed linen and towels will be provided, but if guests wish to bring their own they are at liberty to do so please let us know at the time of booking. We ask that guests maintain a good level of cleanliness in the Shepherd Hut during their stay and we will provide cleaning products for this purpose. We will also ask you to remove all waste to the refuse area prior to leaving the hut.
If you have any more questions or concerns please email us and we will try and allay your fears and we look forward to welcoming you to our lovely Island and the Shepherd Hut in the very near future.
