About 2,500 jobs were reportedly lost and 64,000 reservations were canceled as a result of the announcement.

The statement went on to say that all brands have stopped trading “due to the impact of Covid-19”

However, it is unlikely that people living outside of Scotland will be encouraged to book vacations until the fall under the government’s current plans.
