The Scottish Government apologised to an Aberdeen amusement park for giving them wrong advice over when they can open.
Codonas were originally told that they would be able to start up again on July 15 but were told to close down again days later.
This was due to them being considered in the same category as a travelling funfair, with the park being forced to close its outdoor rides.
Economy Secretary Fiona Hyslop was asked about this issue at today’s coronavirus daily briefing and said it was “unfortunate and regrettable” that conflicting advice had been given out.
She added: “We will move to reopen Scotland’s funfairs when it is safe to do so.
“Unfortunately, there had been conflicting advice issued. The regulations are quite clear about a specific reference to funfairs and they are not able to open at this stage.”
The Scottish Government said that funfairs may have been considered as visitor attractions but regulations had a clear definition for them.
