  • There’s one allocated disabled parking space at Rockcliffe Beach car park.
  • The interpretation boards are easily accessible from both Rockcliffe car parks, but they’re on a steep slope at Kippford.

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 is good and where we need to do better.
