Brilliant attraction - but inaccessible unless on 2 legs

Fabulous venue, and great fun for a family day out. My mother was with us and has arthritic knees - they v kindly offered her a portable chair / crutch so helpful if mild mobility issues. The 3 flights of narrow ye olde Edinburgh stairs to get to the camera obscura itself makes it completely inaccessible if chair-bound I'm afraid. This is no fault of their own - I suspect this beautiful old listed building would never be able to add a lift (or could they...?).

Transport & Parking


Bus and taxi, and disabled parking at the castle.



Basically, inaccessible venue by virtue of the building.



I don’t know whether or not there was an accessible toilet.



Friendly, helpful, and personable.
