How can we stop tourists visiting?

I think the police should record and monitor any English number plates on cars and campavans and stop these people and send them back to England.

Why the contribution is important

Prior and even after the Lockdown was announced there were people from south of the border coming to the Highlands in campavans and parking in car parks at Glen Coe to get away from areas of high levels of infection - and I am sure there were other areas of Scotland that experienced the same thing. I am very concerned that if England relax the lockdown then we will have an influx of tourists coming to Scotland some of whom could be carrying the virus. We need to protect ourselves from anyone who doesn't live here potentially being infected and infecting our local population.

    As a proud Scotsman, I am disgusted at the wording of this idea.

    Your header refers generally to tourism. Your content is just an SNP inspired anti-English diatribe. Tourism is essential to the Scottish economy particularly the Highlands and Islands who for the most part have a seasonal economy. Easter is usually the big economic bang to start of the season and that has now gone. The longer the Scottish government erroneous dictates to small business that they cannot open the more impoverished the Highlands are going to become as small business, who are the main employers, go bust as they cannot recoup there loses over the winter months. The Highlands already have a low average income. The economy needs to be opened up now, and tourism.
