One of our Great Scottish Tours reservations staff will be more than happy to assist with you enquiry.
We are committed to making everyone’s tour with us as enjoyable as possible no matter what their individual needs are.
Nevertheless, there are certain limitations that may arise due to the local and rural nature of Scotland.
The following is intended to provide useful information for anyone travelling with us.
Most visitor attractions in Scotland have good accessibility.
However there are some (such as castles or historic buildings) which may not be suitable for those with limited mobility or for those using a wheelchair.
On tours we have limited storage space and also a weight restriction for our Luxury Van and are therefore unfortunately unable to carry heavy wheelchairs such as Electric scooters & Electric Wheelchairs. We may however be able to carry more flexible, lightweight, folding wheelchairs. Please contact us before booking.
Our Luxury Great Scottish Tours Van generally picks up and drop off customers at overnight accommodation
properties or we are able to pick up from train & Bus Stations,
We also have a few selective ports and airports that we are able to
arrange pickups From.
Although there may be a short walk to meet the Van at some locations.
Unfortunately, our guides are not able to assist with wheelchairs but we can help & assist with loading them on to the Tour Van.
We are unable to offer physical assistance when embarking or disembarking from the van Due to (moving and handling) regulations. Passengers should be able to board and disembark the tour Van themselves using the access doors or with the assistance of a travelling companion.
