COVID protection levels

The rules you have to follow depend on the level in your local area.

Mainland Scotland and some islands are at Level 4. Some islands are at Level 3.  

All of Scotland is at Level 4 apart from the following areas which are at Level 3:

  • Comhairle nan Eilean Siar (Western Isles)
  • Orkney Islands
  • Shetland Islands
  • the following islands in Argyll and Bute: Coll, Colonsay, Erraid, Gometra, Iona, Islay, Jura, Mull, Oronsay, Tiree, and Ulva
  • all islands in Highland, except the Isle of Skye which is at Level 4

Timetable for easing restrictions

We expect to move through the levels on the following dates:

  • 26 April: mainland Scotland and islands at Level 4 are expected to move to Level 3. Islands at Level 3 will remain there until 17 May
  • 17 May: all of Scotland will move to Level 2
  • 7 June: all of Scotland will move to Level 1
  • June (late): all of Scotland will move to Level 0

See the attached PDF table for summary information on what you can and cannot do at each level

Read our planned timetable for easing restrictions.

We will keep these plans under review.
