VisitScotland’s accessibility scheme runs in line with the UK-wide National Accessibility Standards and forms three categories of accessibility, assuring you that an establishment can provide unassisted wheelchair access, assisted wheelchair access or access for those with mobility difficulties.
A comprehensive quality assurance scheme for those with mobility impairment has been in place in Scotland for the past 20 years, so look out for the access symbols in VisitScotland’s brochures and in the online accommodation listings.
The RADAR/National Key Scheme offers disabled people independent access to locked public toilets around the country for a fee, and the locations can be found by purchasing a key or downloading their mobile app.
Many establishments will be able to cater for those with a sensory impairment but please do check with the proprietor before booking.
You can also find a range of accessible attractions throughout Scotland.
