VisitLanarkshire has created access guides with DisabledGo for over 60 per cent of its attractions VisitLanarkshire has collaborated with leading access information provider DisabledGo to develop accessible tourist guides for its attractions.
The guides are designed to provide guests with detailed information before they travel, so they can make an informed decision about an attractions accessibility and suitability.
Each guide shows users the journey through the attraction, providing images and comprehensive information including ramp access, parking restrictions and facilities.
They cater for a diverse range of users, including older people with mobility issues, parents with younger children and those with permanent physical disabilities or temporary injuries.
The access guides will be reviewed annually to ensure that users are receiving relevant and up to date information.
Access guides are currently available for more than 60 per cent of Lanarkshire’s attractions, with a number of guides also available for Lanarkshire hotels, campsites, train stations and shops.
VisitLanarkshire is aiming to provide accessibility guides for every attraction and accommodation provider in the region by 2020.
