Scotland is a well-loved destination - because visitors enjoy the scenery and the heritage, the castles and the gardens, the museums and galleries, and the whisky distilleries. Edinburgh and Glasgow are the two main cities, completely different in character, but both easy to get around and with a good range of accessible accommodation and attractions. Edinburgh Castle is wheelchair accessible despite its antiquity and there are also the National Museum, the Whisky Heritage Centre and the Royal Yacht Britannia - all accessible and reached using the Edinburgh Tour bus (also wheelchair-accessible).
In Glasgow there is the magnificent Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, a magnet for Scots and visitors alike, the Scottish Football Museum and the Burrell Art Collection. Both cities are celebrated for their range of shops and eclectic mix of restaurants, pubs and entertainment.
Edinburgh and Glasgow are well supplied with accessible accommodation, including a range of good-class middle-of-the-range hotels, which offer short breaks. Why not treat yourself to a short break?
