What financial support the Scottish Government has provided the self-catering hospitality industry since the change in the guidance came into force on Friday 25 September

Response

There have been no new financial support measures introduced for the self-catering hospitality industry since the change in guidance came into force on Friday 25th September. However, VisitScotland is still administering a £1.5m grants scheme to provide £10k grants to self-catering operators who have received no other grant assistance under covid schemes. The scheme is now closed to applicants but grants are being paid out at present. See
