The spotlight is on Dundee’s accessibility as it gears up for a surge in tourist activity, according to charity website Euan’s Guide.
The website has praised efforts to make the city’s Waterfront and attractions more accessible and inclusive.
Euan’s Guide recently published an Accessible Highlights guide to Dundee, featuring a range of locations including City Square, Discovery Point, the Botanic Garden and V&A Museum, which will open in September.
Euan and Kiki MacDonald, co-founders of the website, were last year named V&A Design Champions by the new museum for their work to raise the profile of disability access across the country.
Part-funded by VisitScotland’s Growth Fund, it is one in a series of three printed guides from the charity. The others uncover surprisingly accessible Scottish castles and battlefields and disability friendly venues in Fife, which features venues in St Andrews, the home of golf.
Euan is hoping the Dundee guide will inspire disabled people and their families and friends to explore a city which is not only accessible to visitors with disabilities but also geographically well-placed for people in Scotland, the north of England and beyond.
He said: “We’ve been hugely impressed by the focus on accessibility in Dundee. Given the V&A opening this summer and the national and international attention the city will be receiving, we hope this guide will encourage disabled people and their friends and families to consider visiting, whereas before they may have ruled in out completely.”
The Dundee Accessible Highlights guide is available online. It can be downloaded in various formats at euansguide.com/dundee-guide.
