Sector Guidelines

Wild Scotland has produced guidelines to support and signpost operators and businesses in the Wildlife, Adventure and Activity Tourism Sector in Scotland, to websites and other information pools to provide them with generic guidelines and advice relating to COVID-19 to ensure they operate safely and securely for the benefit of themselves, their staff, their visitors and the wider public. The guidance includes information relating to each activity and a link to the appropriate NGB for clear guidance.

The suggestions are not meant to be definitive or finite, they are there to aid everyone to make sensible decisions within their own operations.

We’re Good to Go Industry Standard

The ‘We’re Good To Go’ industry standard and supporting mark mean businesses across all sectors of the tourism industry in Scotland can demonstrate that they're adhering to the respective government and public health guidance, and have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment to check they have the required processes and protocols in place.

The free scheme complements the guidance already issued by Scottish Government to help tourism businesses plan to reopen.

To obtain the mark you must complete a self-assessment through an online platform - - including a checklist confirming you have put the necessary processes in place. Once complete, you'll receive certification and access to the ‘We’re Good To Go’ mark for display in your premises and online.

Businesses across the UK will be assessed according to their respective national guidance once published, including the physical distancing and cleanliness protocols that must be in place.

The Good to Go scheme has now been recognised by the WTTC as meeting its international global standardised health and hygiene protocols and for its role in supporting the recovery of the UK tourism sector: visit here >
