A sensational journey for all
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!EdinBlue, via access review site Euan's Guide

Watch some of our lovely visitors discuss the launch of our British Sign Language tour:
Excellent for hard of hearing - I am hard of hearing. I advised them of this on arrival and had the best experience ever. I was treated like a VIP! I was given a handset that translated into subtitles (and BSL). The tour guide ensured I sat near to him so I could hear. Amazing and discrete. Tour was good too, and the whisky tasting was lovely.Tripadvisor
