Scotland has not kept pace with providing facilities for disabled travellers but this is gradually changing and major attractions such as Edinburgh Castle as well as many hotels and shops now make access for wheel-chairs available. The rail network is the most advanced travel organisation on this front with special facilities at most main stations and helpful staff to ensure disabled travellers are centered for. Public transport within towns has generally not recognized the need for disabled facilities. Car hire companies do have hand-controlled vehicles but these are often in the higher priced categories.
'Disability Scotland' is an organisation that will provide a list of tour operators, hotels and guest houses, self-catering holidays, university accommodation and groups activities that cater to disabled travellers. This can be obtained from 'Disability Scotland', Princes House, 5 Shandwick Place, Edinburgh, EH2 4RG (Tel 0131 229 8632). The information is free to disabled individuals.
