Scotland has great scenery etc. Perhaps this should be looked at and open up caravan parks etc. Social distancing would be easily maintained by caravanners eyv

Why the contribution is important

Scotland will lose all tourism, jobs lost and Scotland will have no money

    I definitely agree we need to get tourism moving again.

    We need to forget about 2020.
    I have a holiday in Skye booked in June.
    I will not get that holiday even though Airbnb haven't cancelled it.
    If we cant travel safely we can't go on Holiday.
    Close the Airport's.
    Its a sacrifice to save lifes

    Sadly tourism will inevitably bring Covid into an area otherwise unaffected. I cannot see any justification to promote the spread of Covid until we are all tested/vaccinated.

    Please don't do this - yes Scotland has great scenery but people live in those areas, they're not just holiday areas for others to travel to. Lives must come first. Protection of residents must come before tourism / holidays and the risk of spreading the virus into unaffected areas.

    THIS IDEA HAS BEEN REPEATEDLY DISCUSSED BEFORE. Please stop asking the same questions. The answer is NO for all the reasons many of us have given before. Remote communities are mostly currently clear of the virus and working hard to keep it that way and protect their many vulnerable local people. They are our families and we love them. The local shop can barely cope and some have closed because they can't get stock. They need what they have for local people. Most of them don't want outsiders in their area bringing high risk to people they love. My Dad's carer saw a camper van recently and burst into tears, the pressure on them is just too much. Someone called the police on them and they were told in no uncertain terms to go back to their primary home and stop being so selfish. Also you can't guarantee that you won't break down or have and accident risking rescue, police and paramedic workers, and then all their families. You can never be 100%sure you are not carrying the virus. You might need fuel and then you touch the fuel pump. All the food outlets and galleries are closed. Mountain Rescue have asked people not to go into the hills because even experienced walkers and climbers have to be rescued sometimes. MRTs can't both rescue and keep socially distant so then all their households are at risk. It's selfish. Stay away from holiday areas, you can live without a holiday and I don't want to have to live without my parents.

    Not sure that social distancing can be achieved in a camp site. Do you deep clean the showers after every use?. What about the toilets, sinks and taps?

    I completely agree.

    If people continue to keep a reasonable distance from others there’s no reason why this wouldn’t work and would pose no threat to locals.

    Well said JLMBD, especially
