The First Minister has told owners of tourist accommodation they should not be accepting bookings.
At the daily Scottish Government press conference First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said it was "understandable" that people might want to self-isolate in remote areas, but that it risks increasing the pressure on local health services.
She said that ferry companies have now been advised that travel will be for essential travel only -–for those who live on islands and for transport of goods.
Hotels, B&Bs and other tourist accommodation providers, she said, should not be accepting visitors.
