Euan’s Guide, a charity website used by disabled people to review, share and discover accessible places to visit, has launched an accessibility guide to Fife.
The guide to one of Scotland’s most popular regions features a range of accessible locations, from the home of golf, St Andrews, to Fife’s famous sandy beaches and its picturesque fishing villages.
The Fife guide, the third in an Accessible Highlights series, is free and downloadable from www.euansguide.com/fife-guide/.
It is being promoted with a series of digital postcards showing just how accessible the region is for disabled visitors.
To celebrate the launch of our new guide to Fife, Euan's Guide are asking everybody to share their own postcard from Fife! Take a selfie by your favourite Fife spot, or send them photos of accessible places you visit as you #AccessTheKingdom. You can send them your photos with a short description by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can share them on social media using #PostcardsFromFife and @EuansGuide. They'll turn your snapshots into postcards where they'll be shared on the #PostcardsFromFife feed!
Part-funded by VisitScotland Growth Fund, the Fife Accessible Highlights guide is the latest in a series of three printed guides from the charity.
The others uncover surprisingly accessible Scottish Castles & Battlefields and Scotland’s trending city, Dundee.
While the website has been Euan’s Guide’s main information source for disabled people looking for accessible places to go, printed guides offer a more geographically focused option for visitors.
Euan is hoping the Fife guide will inspire disabled people and their families and friends to explore a region which is not only accessible to disabled visitors but also geographically accessible for people in Scotland, the north of England and beyond.
