"I would be hard pushed to find many attractions of this calibre when it comes to being accessible and inclusive. Dare I say, one of Scotland's top ten accessible attractions!"

We aim to make your visit to The Scotch Whisky Experience as accessible and enjoyable as we can. We are always looking at ways in which we can enhance our visitor experience for all. If you have any ideas on improvements that we can make, then please do let us know.
Download our access guide for full information on the accessibility of your visit within our building and on our tour. The Access Guide covers everything from arrival, lift access, WC facilities, language devices, our tour, shop, restaurant and our event space facilities. There is also information for hard of hearing customers and visually impaired visitors. We welcome both guide dogs and hearing dogs - water bowls are available from our box office reception. Carers are admitted free of charge. If carers wish to participate in the whisky tasting element and therefore to also receive the whisky tasting glass to take home, the price for the Silver tour will be £8.00; the price for the Gold tour will be £8.00 plus the additional cost of the whisky tasting tray priced at £12.00. If carers wish to fully participate in the Morning Masterclass and Platinum tours, they wil be charged at full-price.
We are delighted to now offer British Sign Language and American Sign Language on our silver tour, as well as subtitles in the following languages: Dutch, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Swedish.
We hope you find everything you need to prepare you for a visit to us.
