Scotland July 2006
In July of this year I went to Scotland for week here are some photo's of my trip:
The Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park was very accessible,
Our next day we took a trip to Stirling Old Town Jail see link: Stirling Old Town Jail
Our next stop was Stirling Castle, see link: www.stirlingcastle.gov.uk/
Highlands & Ben Nevis
Our next stop was up near the Ben Nevis range and the Commando Monument see link:www.visitfortwilliam.co.uk/history-and-culture/the-commandos
Also we visited and travelled on the Jacobite Steam Train, (the train they used on the Harry Potter films) see link: www.westcoastrailways.co.uk/jacobite/jacobite-steam-train-details.cfm
Another amazing experience if you can get along to it is to go on the Ben Nevis Cable Cars, see link:ben-nevis.com/index.php
In June 2011 I went upto Oban in Scotland and stayed at Port Selma Lodges. These are two lodges that have been especially built to cater for those with mobility problems. The lodge I stayed in had doors that are wide enough for even the largest wheelchairs (like mine) The main bedroom has a en suite bathroom with a walk in shower with shower seat. There two bedrooms, the other being a twin room with a smaller bathroom next door with bath. There is also a balcony that is accessible for a wheelchair user that looks over rolling fields and in the distance you can see the sea. www.portselma.co.uk/
Also whilst there I travelled over to the Isle of Mull and Iona, this does take a few phone calls to the ferry company, but they too were very accommodating and it was well worth the trip.
To get me up the mountain Ben Nevis, they had to take the doors off the cable car to get me and my wheelchair in there. It was quite an experience and worth the view at the top.
