We’re Re-opening in August!

** COVID19 Update 10.06.20 – Following closure since 23 March due to the global health pandemic, the Scottish Government has now announced that it will be safe for Tourism and Leisure to re-open from Wednesday 15th July 2020 (subject to health advice). It means we can now thankfully plan a structured and careful re-opening of our business.  For islands like Tiree, it’s a little more complicated as travel restrictions need to be lifted too. An announcement is expected from Calmac during June. The current situation is:

  • With immediate effect, we’re now taking NEW BOOKINGS for 2020 again, though first available date for is 26th September. Bookings for 2021 remain open as usual. New bookings must contain members of the same household.
  • This finally provides some certainty for EXISTING BOOKINGS for the coming month meaning existing bookings prior to 15th July 2020 are now unfortunately cancelled. We’re be in contact with those customers in the coming days either moving their holidays to alternative dates or issuing refunds. As promises all throughout this crisis, no customer of ours will lose out financially.
  • Struthan Cottage will RE-OPEN again on Saturday 1st August 2020 with all existing bookings from that date going forward operating as normal. Amendments to our cleaning regimes will be in effect. We’ve chosen this date carefully to give us time to ensure the cottage remains at the high standard you expect and to give further time for the island community to readjust to tourists and visitors again.
  • Customers are reminded they are responsible for their own TRAVEL PLANS and should be mindful of any possible Calmac and Loganair restrictions
  • Thank you for your patience, loyalty and understanding during what’s been some challenging times.
