Covid-19 Policy

Our Covid-19 policy at Highland Glen Lodges January 2021

Managing your booking

Until we are confident that the current pandemic is over we are implementing some new rules for our lodges. Our Booking site is open and you may make a provisional booking. However you should take the time to read the following.

We encourage you to ring us on 07831 158350 or 01862 821689 to discuss your requirements.

1. We cannot accept any bookings for stays starting during the current Lockdown period imposed by the Scottish Government.

2. If future restrictions are imposed either by the Scottish Government or Highland Council which mean that we have to close, then we cannot guarantee that your booking will be honoured. If we have to cancel that booking we would contact you and try to re-arrange a date if desired. Any money paid other than the £50 would in this case be refunded.

3. If you make a provisional booking we will email you to update you on the latest information during your stay.

4. At the time of writing, all members of a party should be from one household.

5. For enquiries from outside the UK, please email us highlandglenlodges@gmail.com or phone +441862 821689. French and German spoken

Planning to keep you safe

For your added safety whilst staying at our lodges we have implemented the following procedures for the protection of you and all on the site

  • Your lodge will have been left unoccupied for a minimum of 3 days prior to your arrival
  • Prior to cleaning your Lodge will have been sanitised using fogging equipment.
  • Prior to cleaning all appropriate items eg keys, remote controls and switches will have been sanitised using UVC light equipment.
  • A lodge clean would be expected to take between 5-7 hours.
  • All bedding will be covered with additional waterproof covers.
  • A plentiful supply of hygiene products is left in each Lodge
  • It is with regret that we are having to close the guest laundry, stop the use of the DVD library, books, games and shared freezer as we feel this area is a potential infection risk. However we will try to manage the needs of individual guests.

Travel Insurance

Should you have to cancel your holiday for any reason outside of our control, we regret that we will not be able to refund any monies paid. We urge you to take out a relevant Travel Insurance policy to suit your own individual circumstances prior to travel and immediately after booking your holiday if you do not already have a suitable policy in force covering the dates you have booked.
