Fire Safety Arrangements

The safety of our guests is paramount. Our number one priority. As well as fire safety rules being incorporated into our terms and conditions, they feature in our brochures, within our welcome pack and apparent in our cottage. For example fire exit, no smoking and fire procedure & emergency prominent signage, as well as fire extinguisher points clearly marked. We are also compliant with the Scottish Government’s legislation to have interlinked CO2, Heat and Smoke Alarms.

Our red folder in the cottage has fire safety literature and advice for guests, as well as our latest ‘Fire Safety Precautions LogBook‘ as well as documentation below. To ensure the property is as safe as possible and as part of our Short Term Let licence requirements, it is necessary for us to periodically review our Fire Safety Arrangements. These are maintained on a regular basis and for transparency are visible here.
