Continuing our series of blogs highlighting attractions across the country that provide good accessibility in conjunction with Silver Travel Advisor, today, we’d like to showcase three more attractions, this time north of the border.
Accessible attractions in Scotland
- Abbotsford House and Gardens Melrose – This magnificent estate was the 19th century home of Sir Walter Scott and now contains an engaging exhibition about Scott’s life and successes. Many interesting personal possessions belonging to Scott can be seen, including his stunning furniture. The formal gardens are accessible both by wheelchair and mobility scooter. The visitor centre, restaurant, play trail and estate path are also free to visit.
- Scottish Football Museum – Based at Scotland’s Hampden Park, the Football Museum is a must-do for those that love the beautiful game. As well as displaying artefacts and memorabilia from the last 200 years, it also reflects the social history of the city of Glasgow. The audiovisual displays are both absorbing and interesting and the lively anecdotes from experts, players and fans aren’t to be missed.
- The Scottish Seabird Centre – Based in North Berwick, the Scottish Seabird Centre provides visitors with a wealth of fascinating information for all ages on local marine and birdlife through its unique use of displays, films and live web cams. There’s a café and a shop for visitors to stop and relax in. You can also adopt a puffin and take a boat trip to ensure that your visit will be a memorable one.
