Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. There is nothing to stop you exercising contact with your children as long as there are no health issues arising from the contact or from the journey. If you are travelling by car it is a non issue. There has not been much guidance but the head of the family courts in England issued guidance and the Scottish family law sheriffs have endorsed that guidance as being good for Scotland too. Here it is for you: https://www.judiciary.uk/announcements/coronavirus-crisis-guidance-on-compliance-with-family-court-child-arrangement-orders/ I hope that helps.
