Alasdair prepares for guiding after the Lockdown

Alasdair with guests

Scotland is set to open for tourists again on July 15 and I am looking at how to reassure guests that I will be taking every step to keep them safe.

I am a member of the Scottish Tourist Guides Association and our board – which includes me – have published risk management advice to members which I am attaching as a PDF at the end of this piece of news.

I know we are unlikely to get many overseas guests due to the rule that anybody flying into the UK has to go into quarantine for 14 days.

But, if anybody does want to use my services, I am working on ways to do tours – in particular walking tours – where we can do social distancing.

It will be a very different world for all of us but I do hope we can get back to some normality and I can show guests what a wonderful country Scotland is and share my love of it.
