Falkirk Council, in partnership with Stirling Council, Discover Clackmannanshire, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, and Falkirk Delivers has launched an innovative and inclusive campaign Access Forth Valley.

This campaign includes the development of a dynamic new website providing valuable accessibility information for visitors when planning a trip to the Forth Valley region. There are some useful and detailed itineraries that have been developed for all visitors to the area with a focus on those living or caring for those with mobility issues, autism and dementia. This campaign highlights that everyone can enjoy a fantastic trip to the region.

There are various itineraries grouped under heritage, family fun and outdoor, each offering inspirational suggestions for things to see and do, accompanied by a short video to bring these ideas to life, and crucially highlighting the accessible facilities.

Businesses from across the region have been working together with partners to create a more accessible destination and to let potential visitors know. Throughout the itineraries there are links to Euan’s Guide, a website for disabled access reviews, access guides and accessibility information.

Dylan, a former Falkirk High School student who has worked on this project as a wheelchair user, provides hints and tips for visitors and has been instrumental in offering valuable insights into some of the mobility challenges visitors can face when taking a trip.

Also as part of the campaign, Simply Emma, a social media influencer offering accessible travel guides, tips and reviews has created two blogs as part of the website. Both of the blogs - “Accessible Loch Lomond, The Trossachs & Stirling” and “Wheelchair Accessible things to do in Stirling” are live on the site and provide some rich content for businesses in the region to share.
