Amazing Fully Accessible Tour
Great Accessible place to visit, a must to see if you are in the Royal Mile or simply visiting Edinburgh's city centre. If you are looking for an accessible whisky experience, this place is one of the best. The staff can't do enough to help you during your visit, they are always smiling and happy to help!. The tour tells you about the tale of Scotland's national drink with high-tech exhibits and a barrel ride through a virtual destillery.
Transport & Parking
There is no parking onsite however there is an NCP car park on Castle Terrace with 6 blue badgedisabled bay spaces. The NCP car park is 0.4 miles from the main entrance of the Scotch Whisky Experience. There are intercoms located at the entrance, exit and pay machines if assistance is required. There is on-road parking around the site as well, however this is paid by the hour. The surface from the car park to the entrance of the Scotch Whisky Experience is a mix of both paved and cobblestones. Depending on the route one takes it is either an incline, or steps. If you are travelling by train: The nearest railway station is Waverley Station (0.6 miles away). There are taxi ranks located outside of the railway station and these are accessible by lift. To ensure an accessible taxi, I suggest you to book it in advance by calling City Cabs. If you are travelling by bus: There are no buses that go directly to The Scotch Whisky Experience, however there are many stops in the surrounding area. Buses 3,5,7,8,14,30,31,37 and 49 all cross over, and stop on North Bridge; it is a 0.4 mile walk to The Scotch Whisky Experience. Edinburgh also offers a tram service, which stops 0.5miles from The Scotch Whisky Experience.
Wheelchairs can be used throughout the building with a fully Accessible main entrance from the street. They have one manual wheelchair which can be borrowed if needed. They also welcome assistance dogs, and can provide water bowls for them. You can ask staff for assistance. The tour in sign language is also available. Hearing loops can also be found in the building.
Well Signposted Accessible loo is on a lower floor which can be reached easily through the lift.
Very helpful and always asking if they could help with anything.

One of the best Accessible places where I have been.
