Traquair House

Wheel Chair Users

Traquair welcomes all visitors but unfortunately we cannot make the house fully accessible to wheel chair users. However, we have recently introduced a video tour of the house which can be viewed on the ground floor by request. The video lasts approximately 15 minutes and is an informative history of the family and tour of the house.

The following parts of Traquair are accessible by wheelchair:

Parking

Disabled Visitors may be dropped off in front of the house and cars parked a short distance away. Please ask at the ticket box when you arrive.

Grounds

Tarmac drives and reasonable access to brewery if dry. The walled garden is grassed with mown lawns as is the back of the house near maze. We are currently developing a short woodland walk to be fully accessible for wheelchairs.

Toilets

A new toilet block near Restaurant with disabled toilet and access.
