Ravi Rawat, Operations Director at Black Sheep Management Services Ltd, explained: “With around eight in 10 hotels in the Highlands being forced to close or reduce operations, we want to safeguard the jobs of our much-valued 120 plus employees and thank people in the Highlands and Islands.”

Ravi Rawat continues: “Our region has done incredibly well in handling the Coronavirus pandemic, with infection rates remaining low.

“And we want to keep it that way. So, to allow our communities to still enjoy a relaxing getaway, we have introduced this exclusive offer only available to people who live in the Highlands and Islands.

“We’re adding a new twist to the ‘support local’ mantra by supporting our local communities, and I hope that people from the region can take advantage of this very special offer over the winter.”
