Please be aware that English and Scottish governments have differing Covid rules - if you are travelling between the two countries you will find different requirements are in place.  We are still fully complying with current Scottish Government requirements.  This means that face masks are strongly recommended in all public areas of the house.  Hand sanitiser is available at points through the house.


Guests should not travel to The Gordon if they are displaying any Covid symptoms and any guest who arrives with symptoms will regrettably not be permitted to stay.  Any guest who develops symptoms while staying with us must notify us immediately and then follow the prevailing guidance at that time.  At this time that would be to return home immediately.


We will be following best practice and legislation regarding face coverings, hand wash, room servicing etc.  As this evolves frequently we will contact you shortly before your stay to advise what protocols are in place at that time.


The safety of our staff and our other guests as well as the ageing population of close-knit Ballater is our priority at all times and we ask you to respect that when booking and subsequently staying with us.
