Independent Businesses and Accessibility

Being a wheelchair user and being a shopaholic, it can be difficult when shops aren’t accessible. I tend to shop at the same places all the time and most of those shops are chain places, my favourite is New Look. Most independent shops are down roads that have older buildings and steps at the entrances…

Wheelchair Users Perspective on 4DX Cinema

I recently stayed overnight in Aberdeen for my brother’s graduation, and during that stay we went to see Incredibles 2 at Cineworld Union Square in 4DX. Obviously, that wasn’t the highlight of the weekend as I had a great time the day before celebrating with my family. However, we had never been to a movie…

International Day of People with Disabilities

Sunday 3rd December 2017 was International Day of People with Disabilities and I had mixed feelings about this when I noticed it was coming up. At first, I was annoyed because I just saw it that people with disabilities were getting singled out  but then I thought about it more. You get International Red Hair …

Staying At The Crowne Plaza, Glasgow

Some of you may have read my post last year around Christmas time about my struggle of staying in a hotel in Edinburgh and having to hire equipment that didn’t work. Well it might not be Edinburgh, but I have finally found a hotel in Glasgow that takes away all that stress. Last month I…

Enchanted Forest

I have wanted to go to the Enchanted Forest in Pitlochry for a few years now, however the information regarding accessibility for wheelchairs on their website has put me off booking tickets. Am I alone in this? I don’t think so. Previously I have tried phoning customer services to get more information, but I was…

Festival Vibes

Well this last weekend was a little bit different. I attended the newest Scottish music festival to hit Dundee, Carnival 56. Now the first thing I would like to mention is why it’s called Carnival 56, this is a question I have been asked a lot since the weekend and after Google searching it I’ve…
