26th of April is the date set by the Scottish Goverment as a re-opening date for Tourist Accommodation, however with restrictions in place.

We are now aiming to re-open on the 26th of April. We will have restrictions in place as we had last summer, which means limited use of the kitchen, table service breakfast, facemasks when moving around the property and more regular cleaning of the communal areas. Hand wash stations are widely available across the property and our guests are encouraged to use them.

Hope to see you all from the 26th!


The Scottish goverment have announced a national lockdown until the end of January starting from the 4th of January. Unfortunately this means we will have to push the re-opening date of The Court back to the 1st of March.

The Co-living space is still open and able to accept new bookings from the 1st of February, so please get in touch with us if you are interested.


Unfortunately, due to new national restrictionswe are, with heavy hearts, forced to temporarily close the CoURT. We are hoping to re-open the building on the 1st of February again.

Our Co-Living space, The Loft, remains open during this time and we have a few spots left for any long term guests. If you are interested to join the co-living comunity then please get in touch with us on


In accordance with the new guidelines we now request that all customers wear a face covering while in our premises and not sitting at their table. 

Guests must wear a face covering when entering and exiting the premises and while visiting the toilet. 

We appreciate this is further restrictions to your visit but we must all do that we can to adhere to the guidelines as they change. Our team are also adapting to these changes and appreciate your understanding and patience. This is a condition for us to be able to continue to trade and it is far better than the unimaginable situation where we could be forced to close again. 

We would like to thank you for all your continued support.

Basic protective measures against the new coronavirus

Stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, available on the WHO website and through your national and local public health authority. Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others. Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:

Wash your hands frequently

Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.

Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.

Maintain social distancing

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth

Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.

Practice respiratory hygiene

Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.

Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.

If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early

Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.

Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.

Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provider

Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
