A north holiday resort has resumed trading while the future of hundreds of jobs are still considered.
Macdonald Hotel Group has begun the phased reopening of its four-star resort at Aviemore, and will open is doors to leisure guests on Wednesday.
Many of those workers facing redundancy may also lose their homes, as they live in staff accommodation.
The hotel chain is currently carrying out a nationwide consultation for all of its 31 sites, blaming the economic impact of coronavirus.
However, bosses said they have experienced a significant rise in bookings since lockdown began to ease – with three of the four hotels at Aviemore, along with the two restaurants and on-site cinema due to open next week.
The self-catering lodges and golf courses are already open, following Scottish Government guidance.
Group managing director Gordon Fraser said: “We cannot overestimate the devastating impact this crisis has had on Scotland’s tourism and hospitality industry.
“Very regrettably, it is likely that a large number of redundancies will be necessary, but we have pledged that we will continue to support staff currently living onsite in employee accommodation for as long as we are able.
“We are working with the local council and national government bodies to ensure that all employees have access to external support networks.
“Macdonald Aviemore Resort remains a cornerstone of the Highland community and we understand its importance to the local economy.”
