Happy Holidays from all of us at Euan’s Guide!

This month we have a brilliant selection of events that will get you in the festive spirit - including an interactive day out, a panto and a light show in an iconic Scottish landmark. We hope you like our suggestions and if you come to any of these – or another fun event – leave a comment or disabled access review on our website. Click here to share your experience with others.

We also invite you to take part in the 2019 Access Survey. This survey is for us to hear and share your opinions of disabled access in the UK. It is open until late December, so you still have time to get involved! Four participants will be chosen at random to receive a £25 Amazon voucher as a thank you from us.
