Covid-19 GUIDELINES & UPDATES for Wildlife, Adventure and Activity Operators in Scotland

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