  • We welcome assistance dogs only in the garden.
  • Parking is available at the reception area.
  • An accessible toilet is available.
  • There are level paths to the garden entrance. The grounds present some restrictions due to gravel and moss paths, some steps and steep slopes in places.

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.
