Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers Chief Executive, Fiona Campbell, said:
“We are delighted that self-catering can welcome guests again from 3 July, this news is fantastic and nothing short of a lifeline for our £723million sector and for the many individuals and families who rely on it to support themselves.
“Scotland’s self-caterers were among the first to close our businesses as we entered lockdown, at great personal and financial cost, and now we’re poised to be among the first to help the Scottish tourist economy stand back up on its own two feet.”
“Our association has been working closely with the Scottish Government throughout this process and we are delighted that Ministers have listened to us.
“With our stringent, robust, and comprehensive cleaning protocols in place, which are backed by the Scottish Government, we can safely and securely open our properties and go back to providing our guests with first class breaks”.
