Faraway, I think you will find that it's a recommendation from the Scottish Government rather than a way to hike the prices. It's to protect cleaning staff or similar as most property owners live miles away from the property and use locals to do the service changeover. We've already been on four self catering breaks and they all had the same instructions, two referred to "In line with Scottish Government guidelines". If you were a regular self catering user (OOH Matron) you would have realised they haven't used Covid as an excuse. They've just put up the prices because they could, and by quite a bit at that.
