We're good with that so no need to amend the list for us. Though we will probably also be in Scotland (North-West) shortly before - around Easter.

We should be there. Might make a bit of a Scottish trip out of it and pop back to Helensburgh and/or Stranraer. Let’s just hope we don’t get another outbreak in the winter so lockdown is reimposed.
