Socially distanced holidays launched at Taymouth Marina


A Highland Perthshire holiday destinatio­n has set up “exclusive socially distanced holidays” as a precaution against COVID-19 after it reopened to the public.

The family-owned Taymouth Marina reopened its marina, outdoor wellness spa, water sports centre and self-catering accommodat­ion on Wednesday.

And in response to social distancing measures, the award-winning facility has redesigned its offer which will allow guests to use their outdoor wellness spa and water sports centre within their own social bubble.

The onsite properties, many with private hot tubs, have been deep cleaned “to the highest standards of safety and hygiene” in line with government and industry guidance.

And Taymouth Marina has introduced contactles­s ordering of food and drinks as an extra precaution.

Owner Eric Strickland said: “We have planned our new holiday offer with absolute attention to detail so we can provide not only a safe but pleasurabl­e and exhilarati­ng holiday experience.

“We want it to be as normal as possible, but with careful measures introduced to keep everyone safe.

“Within hours of opening we had most of August sold and now we have only limited availabili­ty for July and September with a number of enquiries for October and even December.

“Clearly people want something to look forward to and Taymouth Marina offers something for everyone, whether they are seeking the thrill of water sports, the relaxation of the outdoor spa or the universal appeal of Scottish nature at its most vibrant.”
