Scottish leaders have warned citizens not to cram into rural and remote communities to flee the coronavirus pandemic.
Local media reports have said many Scots have headed to the country's Highlands and islands in caravans or retreated to their vacation homes to self-isolate.
Scotland's First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, ordered ferries not to transport non-essential travelers to the remote islands, where small communities would struggle with an avalanche of tourists.
Officials warned that the rural health care services can't accommodate a crush of people and that the travelers risk transmitting the virus to the local communities.
