COVID-19 GUIDELINES for Wildlife, Adventure and Activity Operators in Scotland

On 9 August 2021 all of Scotland moves beyond Level 0 of the COVID-19 levels system, as set out in the Covid-19: Strategic Framework update.

Moving beyond Level 0 does not signal the end of the pandemic.  Although many legal restrictions will be lifted, and many people are now fully vaccinated, it is still possible for the virus to spread between people. It will continue to be important for everyone to remain cautious and follow guidance on precautionary measures.

If you have a questions relating to your outdoor activity and the answer is not listed below, please get in touch with Wild Scotland – and we will do our best to find the answer for you. 

Wild Scotland has produced guidelines to support and signpost operators and businesses in the Wildlife, Adventure and Activity Tourism Sector in Scotland, to websites and other information pools to provide them with generic guidelines and advice relating to COVID-19 to ensure they operate safely and securely for the benefit of themselves, their staff, their visitors and the wider public. The guidance includes information relating to each activity and a link to the appropriate NGB for clear guidance. 

The suggestions are not meant to be definitive or finite, they are there to aid everyone to make sensible decisions within their own operations.

Please note that not all activity guidance has been updated in relation to moving Beyond Level 0
