We would like everyone, whatever their ability, to enjoy our highland coo experiences. We understand for some people with disabilities an outdoor adventure means a little more planning.
We hope the descriptions below will help you to firm up your plans.
When you arrive at Kitchen Coos & Ewes our farmyard/car park is a large area that can park up to a dozen cars or even larger vehicles like motorhomes. This area is made from firmly packed gravel which is on the level.
The farmyard/carpark joins seamlessly onto a block paviour area at the entrance to the toilets, gift shop and the ‘Auld Byre’ where refreshments are served when you return from the highland coo safaris. There is a small ramp into the gift shop that can be accessed by wheelchairs.
Access to our toilets is on the level. One toilet is fully accessible with a, higher than standard, pan height of 480mm. There is one grab rail next to the toilet with another rail that can be dropped down on the other side. There is also a small sink that can be reached from the toilet. The sink also has a grab rail on either side. A pull cord is fitted next to the toilet to raise the alarm if help is required.
Access to our safari trailer is along a block paviour path that is 40 metres long. It leads from the farmyard/car park to a long slow ramp (10 metres long) that leads directly onto our safari trailer. There are also three wheelchair anchor points down the middle of our trailer. The bench seating on our safari trailer is padded for extra comfort.
Our Cream Tea Coo tour and our Insta Coo tour are both very accessible as everyone on board the safari trailer stays on the trailer for the entire duration of the safari.
Please note that during our Hands-on Coo Tour everyone needs to be able negotiate four steps off and back onto the safari trailer to get their hands-on experience in the field.
Please also note that our Walking Tour is not suitable for wheelchair users as much of it is over uneven grassland.
If you need to keep any medication chilled while you are here we have a fridge in our gift shop.
All dogs are welcome at our farm. However, for safety reasons, dogs cannot go on safari in the trailer or on the walking tour. Owners are very welcome to walk their dogs along our roadway before and after a tour.
