The year of staycations and remote working

Nearly half of the United Kingdom’s 30 million employees have worked from home during the pandemic according to the country’s statistics body, but has the novelty worn off? Most of us quite enjoyed being able to work from the safety and comfort of our own homes, but as we have been doing it for quite a while over the past months, it no longer gives you that warm cosy feeling of working in your slippers.

As 2020 has turned into the year of the Staycation, Dornoch has absolutely loved welcoming visitors from all over the UK.   It has continued to deliver its famous Highland hospitality while respecting social distancing.  The businesses have signed up to the ‘Good to Go’ quality assurance scheme so you can be sure that safety protocols are being followed to ensure your safety. If you are feeling a little low about the thought of working remotely or are perhaps planning your next Staycation, why not plan your next trip around where the Wi-Fi is!

By embracing the staycation trend and adhering to government guidelines you can still enjoy remote working while embracing the very best the Scottish Highlands has to offer in Dornoch!  As long as there is Wi-Fi you can have peace of mind that you can jump on that Zoom meeting or have the teams calls daily…just with a better view.

We are all adapting to the new normal but working from home might not be as exciting as it once was, especially with the winter months looming.  But imagine starting your day by looking over majestic landscapes and walking along the miles of unspoilt beach.  Clear your mind and lungs and get ready to enjoy working from your Highland home!  Dornoch is open, the season has extended, and this special Highland town is ready to provide that warm (socially distanced) welcome.  Dornoch has a historic town centre with cathedral, castle, jail & courthouse nestling round the green and a range of local cafes, restaurants and shops, so is the perfect base for you to explore when the work is done for the day.

A staycation in Dornoch will recharge your batteries and set you up for the winter, so check out the great range of wonderful holiday cottages and Scottish holiday lodges at VisitDornoch.com. It is important when booking your Staycation that you adhere to government guidelines and are aware of the latest information from the Scottish Government.
