Bookings made within 1 month of arrival date to be paid in full. The cheque for the deposit will not be cashed if you honour your stay and there are no damages after your stay.
 
Cancellation: Should you have to cancel, you must advise us in writing immediately. In this case, the deposit paid is not refundable, and is forfeit. Due effort will be made to re-let the property. If a suitable tenant cannot be found, then all rent paid is forfeit. If it is re-let, the amount of any rent paid will be refunded less any expenses incurred. Failure to pay the rent in full by the due date is treated as a cancellation.

The Tenancy: The contract effected on receipt of confirmation of booking is in terms of Section 2 (1) (bbb) of the Rent (Scotland) Act 1974, and confers on the tenant the right to occupy the house for the period agreed for holiday purposes only. The number of persons occupying the house must not exceed the number for which the accommodation has been reserved. We reserve the right to levy an extra charge in the case of a larger number of persons than approved using the accommodation, or may terminate the rental period because of unreasonable behaviour or damage to the property. For insurance purposes, at least one of the tenants must be at least 21 years of age.
 
Shortcomings & Defects: Please advise us immediately of any shortcomings in the house. We cannot accept subsequent claims for shortcomings not so notified.

Tenants may be billed for any damaged or missing items.

Damages: Should there be any damages at the end of your stay, the deposit will be used to cover reasonable costs to replace damaged items. Otherwise, the deposit cheque wil not be cashed.
 
Pets: You may bring a cat or dog with you, but please let us know when you book. You must bring your pet's basket, as they are only permitted on the strict understanding that they must not lie on bedding or chairs, and will be restrained from causing undue annoyance to other residents. They should not be left unattended, must be kept on a lead, and prohibited from fouling areas around the house. A stock of polythene bags is provided for clearing up after your pet. If your pet does cause undue annoyance or disturbance to other residents, you may be asked to leave the house without refund.

Hot Tub Disclaimer
1. The Hot Tub can be a pleasurable and relaxing experience. However for your safety and enjoyment there are strict rules and guidelines that must be adhered to when using the Hot Tub. This is an important health and safety legal requirement for hot tubs used in a commercial environment. The Hot Tub is locked and will only be unlocked prior to your arrival if the following safety guidelines are read and understood. The signatory is responsible for making sure that all members of their party, and their guests, are aware of, and strictly adhere to the guidelines. Please note that a member of staff may visit the hot tub up to 3 times per day (dependant on usage) to check the water balance and quality. Water balance will be adjusted as necessary and results recorded. This procedure is a safety requirement for Hot Tubs in holiday lodges and ensures that the chemical balance of the water remains continuously safe for your enjoyment throughout your stay.
2. It is vital that the pool is kept clean for your own safety. Failure to do so results in the water balance changing which seriously diminishes the effectiveness of the sanitising chemicals. This in turn can lead to nasty microbiological bacteria multiplying rapidly causing a number of serious hazards to users’ health.
3. Please do take a shower and use the toilet prior to entering the hot tub. Do not submerge your head under the water, drink the water, or allow the water to enter your mouth. Clients should also shower after using the tub.
4. The hot tub should only be used for 15 minutes at any one time.
5. Failure to maintain a clean pool may result in the need to drain down, sanitise, and re-fill. Approximately 24 hours + will then be required to return the tub to a comfortable temperature.
6. Please report any illnesses following Hot tub Pool usage to the office immediately. This is extremely important if pneumonia-like symptoms are experienced.
7. Please call the office if you require further advice with respect to these procedures.
8. It is important that the hot tub is never switched off at the mains switch (Even if you are not using it). There may be an extra charge deducted from your bond if the tub is switched off during your stay.
9. Risk to Children – Extreme caution must be exercised to prevent unauthorised access by under age children.
10. The Hot Tub cover must remain closed at all times unless a responsible adult is present. No children under 4 years old are permitted in the Hot Tub. Children under 4 years old cannot regulate their body temperatures suitably. All children under 16 using the Hot Tub must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.
11. To reduce the risk of injury, lower water temperatures are recommended for children over 4 years old. Children are especially sensitive to hot water.
12. Instruct your children to shower and visit the toilet prior to use and inform them to keep their heads out of the water (especially mouth and ears).
13. Remind children that wet surfaces can be very slippery. Make sure that children take great care when entering or exiting the Hot tub.

26. Hyperthermia – Prolonged immersion in hot water can result in hyperthermia – a dangerous condition that occurs when the internal body temperature exceeds 37 degrees C. Symptoms include, unawareness of impending hazard, failure to perceive heat, failure to recognise the need to exit the Hot tub, foetal damage in pregnant women, and unconsciousness resulting in a danger of drowning. The use of alcohol, drugs or medication greatly increases the risk of fatal hyperthermia in Hot Tubs.
27. To reduce the risk of injury – The water in the Hot tub should never exceed 40 degrees C. Water temperatures between 37 degrees C and 40 degrees C are considered safe. Lower water temperatures are recommended for extended use (over 10 minutes) and for young children (over 4 years old). Extended use can cause hyperthermia.
28. Pregnant, or possibly pregnant women should limit Hot tub temperature to 38 degrees C. Failure to do so may result in permanent injury to your baby.
