I’ve always loved exploring the outdoors. Even as a young girl I would often go hill-walking with my family and loved running about playing outside with friends. As my condition progressed I eventually had to stop doing these things not because I didn’t enjoy them anymore, but because I could no longer physically do them. Gradually having to rely on my wheelchair more and more. [Read more…] about Explore The Beautiful Countryside With The All-Terrain Wheelchair
Clear blue skies and warm spring sunshine accompanied us on our long weekend cabin break at Forest Holidays, Strathyre a few weeks ago. The weather was beautiful and quite possibly the best we’ve had in Scotland this year. We really couldn’t have picked a nicer weekend to enjoy [Read more…] about Forest Holidays: The Ultimate Escape To Nature In The Forest
For most people the first thing that comes to mind when they think of Scotland is whisky. Understandably since it’s a huge part of Scottish culture. Therefore a trip to Scotland’s capital city wouldn’t be complete without visiting The Scotch Whisky Experience. [Read more…] about An Accessible Tour of The Scotch Whisky Experience
Travelling doesn’t necessarily have to involve jumping on a plane and jetting off to a foreign country. Sometimes staying close to home can be just as exciting and exactly what’s needed to recharge those batteries and clear the mind. That’s exactly what we did when myself, partner, Mother-in-law and Toby the dog were invited along for a fantastic weekend stay at The Rings, a luxury and accessible holiday cottage in Fife, Scotland.

Visiting Edinburgh Castle should be on your list of top tourist attractions to visit especially if you’ve never been to the city before. It’s also fun to do even if you’re a local. I’ve been to the Castle before, but it was during my school days, which sadly, was more than a few years ago. [Read more…] about Visiting Edinburgh Castle in a Wheelchair
I mentioned in my previous post that I’m not a regular public transport user. So it’s unusual for me to say that I’ve been on not just one but two forms of public transport in the same week. The first being a bus to take part in a demo for a new wheelchair securement system and the second being Edinburgh Trams. Both were great experiences as a wheelchair user.

Even though I’m through in Glasgow quite often, The Riverside Museum has never been on my list of things to do in the city. Well, that was true until last week when we decided to go to Glasgow for the day with our Nephew. We were looking for something that would keep an energetic two year old happy, wouldn’t cost too much and was wheelchair accessible. The Riverside Museum seemed to be a good option and we weren’t disappointed. [Read more…] about A ‘Wheelie’ Accessible Visit To The Riverside Museum
This past weekend I enjoyed a nice day at the Glasgow Botanic Gardens with my boyfriend, Sister and Nephew. We had originally planned to go shopping and then go for some dinner, but decided once we got to Glasgow to pop into the Botanic Gardens before hitting the shops. My nephew loves to run around so we thought it would be a good place to take him. He loved watching the fish and wandering around inside the gardens and also splashing about in a puddle or two.
We plan on going back again in the summer and spending a little more time in the gardens outside when it isn’t cold. It will be lovely when all the flowers have blossomed outside and our nephew can run about even more. [Read more…] about Glasgow Botanic Gardens
