UPDATES

Due to revised  legislation in Scotland we can only accept bookings from single households.

We are now open and look forward to welcoming guests old and new to Gartnagrenach. However, we have had to make some changes to our availability calendar.

On a temporary basis we are welcoming bookings from September onwards commencing on Saturdays for 6 nights or Sundays for 5 nights.

This is to allow us to implement our enhanced cleaning and disinfection programme and to have the house ready for you. As part of our programme we have followed government and industry COVID 19 guidelines and are now members of the "WE'RE GOOD TO GO" National Tourist Organisations scheme.

If you are considering a longer break please contact us to discuss availibility with you as we may be able to accommodate you.

If you are travelling from other parts of the United Kingdom please take into account any local restrictions.

If you are unable to do this then we regret that we will have to charge you for the extended period that you remain at Gartnagrenach in line with our advertised costs.
