Remarkably accessible castle
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair
When we arrived at the Esplanade we were told that the disabled spaces were full but they arranged for my husband to drop me off as close to the entrance as possible then he went and parked the car. As I have a blue badge parking was free. Staff radioed for the courtesy car to take me up to the highest point of the castle. The driver , Jerry, was incredibly helpful and pointed out where we could go. The main rooms are all accessible and there is a lift up to the Stirling Heads exhibition. We could also access the great hall which has a disabled toilet (See photo) We ran out of time so didn't go into the cafes or round the grounds.
Transport & Parking
Free parking for blue badge holders on the Esplanade. Wouldn't have thought public transport would go near the castle.
The castle is all cobbled . It's been made as accessible as possible.
We went to the disabled toilet beside the great hall and it was excellent. There are other disabled toilets but we didn't go into them
Every staff member we met went above and beyond to help us. Can't praise them highly enough
Anything else you wish to tell us?
Will definitely go back again but stay for a longer time
