Is the route accessible for those with mobility issues?

 

It can be.

We change our routes regularly, and sometimes travel over rough ground in the Auld Kirkyard, next to the Church of the Holy Rude...which, though atmospheric, is not exactly 'wheelchair friendly'.

That said, if necessary we can usually change the route to accomodate patrons with mobility issues by following the 'wet weather' routes reserved for those rare nights when the grasslands of the graveyards become too muddy to be safely traversed. On such occasions we simply stick to the paths and pavements.

We're in a Castle town, so we're on a steep hill from St John Street to the graveyard - the first part of the tour - but after that it levels out. We're happy to say that plenty of patrons have safely traversed the route on sticks, wheelchairs and mobility scooters.

If patrons with mobility issues are in doubt, please drop us an e-mail. A little advance notice helps us alter OUR plans, but we're happy to do so.
