TRAVELLING DISTANCES

We ask that you make your own judgement on the latest government guidelines around travelling local distances. Make every effort to avoid using any public services on route to and from our facility. Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister clarified travel guidance in a letter on 11th June to our local MSP. Nicola Sturgeon wrote ‘In rural areas what can reasonably be considered to be the local area may be wider than a 5 mile radius. This is one of the reasons why at this stage we have not placed a specific distance in law. The guidance is advisory.’ Read full letter on travel guidance here.
