Pitlochry Respitality Break

Respitality Scotland are delighted to announce that bookings can now be made, once again, at the Pitlochry property for 2022. Shetland Carers can offer a carer and companion a one week self-catering break FREE through the Respitality Scheme.

The BEN Licensed Society own the one bedroom property, and they have kindly gifted the use of this property to Respitality. This very generous gesture has allowed short breaks to be offered to a carer and companion via the Respitality project all year round. Shared Care Scotland manages the bookings and maintenance/cleaning arrangements of the property.

Breaks through the Respitality property are offered for 7 nights from Saturday (check in from 4pm) to the following Saturday (check out time is 10am). Carers are welcome to arrive later or leave earlier within the 7 day period that they have booked out.

Breaks are intended as a peaceful respite for carers and not as a family holiday. The small property is on a quiet, private residential estate and as the property is self-catering, no food will be provided.

Please note:

  • A maximum of 2 people are allowed to stay (a carer and companion, which may or may not be the cared for person).
  • Both guests must be 18 years or older. This has been stipulated by The Ben.
  • Furthermore both guests must show proof of COVID vaccinations prior to the booking taking place (this includes boosters) with permission for Shared Care Scotland to view these documents if required.
  • No pets are allowed, however recognised assistance dogs are allowed.
  • The bungalow is not fully accessible. It has two steps to the front door and a single handrail. Access to the back garden is via the back door in the living room. There are two steps and no handrail. Access to the front door is via a narrow pathway and the doorway entrance is into a narrow hallway.

As of 2023, Shetland Carers will be allocated specific dates for stays at the property, however for the remainder of 2022, bookings can be made on a “first come first serve” arrangement. The first opening will be Saturday 11th June.

If anyone is interested in booking a FREE one week break at the Pitlochry property, please get in touch with us at [email protected] or telephone Amanda Brown on 01595 743923.
