The tourism sector is to benefit from further lifting of restrictions under phase two of the route map out of lockdown.
From Friday, the five-mile travel limit for leisure will be lifted, although the public are encouraged to stay within the local area where possible.
Self-contained, self-catering holiday accommodation will also be able to reopen, including caravan and campervan parks, lodges and second homes.
From July 6, pavement cafes and beer gardens will also be able to reopen.
Speaking ahead of a visit to Grantown on Spey Caravan Park, Tourism Secretary Fergus Ewing said: “The re-opening of self-catering accommodation and the lifting of the five mile restriction for travel is good news for our hard-pressed tourism sector.
“Being able to enjoy outdoor hospitality from next week will also be a much needed boost for the industry. These announcements don’t mean everything is open again but we are moving in the right direction to get the industry back up and running.
“The progression into Phase 2 of the route map means it is even more important that the public follow all public health measures, including physical distancing and washing or sanitising hands regularly. The onus is on all of us to follow the guidance and ensure the virus continues to be suppressed.”
He continued: “When travelling, it is essential that plans are made in advance and checks are done on what facilities are open, like public toilets and car parking availability.
“Please ensure you make use of booking systems where available prior to your journey and avoid busy beaches, parks and forests. If you arrive somewhere and it’s crowded, it is essential that you try and find another place.
“If all of us take the necessary individual measures to avoid transmission of the virus, I’m confident we can keep progressing through the route map and enjoy more of what of Scotland has to offer.”
Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers chief executive Fiona Campbell said that people were delighted to be able to get back to work.
She added: “Individuals and families who run self-catering properties in Scotland can now be reassured that their businesses have solid and dependable futures ahead of them.
“By working with the Scottish Government, our £723 million sector has risen to the challenges presented by Covid-19 and is in a healthy position to be a major player in Scottish tourism’s road out of the pandemic and into the future.”
