Facilities & access

  • Access to and around the cottage is difficult, with two steps into the cottage, uneven floors, winding stairs and low ceilings.
  • There’s an uneven, sloping garden with narrow gravel paths.

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.
