Helping visitors enjoy Scotland responsibly

As coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions are further eased and tourism reopens, we have created a new visitor charter on how to enjoy Scotland over the coming months.

This guidance informs visitors of how they can work together with businesses and communities to help the tourism industry get back on its feet, in a safe way.
