Accessibility at Blair Athol
We’re pleased to have consulted Euan’s guide to ensure that we provide disabled access information upfront to give all our visitors the confidence to visit our distillery and enjoy the experience. To help plan your visit, we’ve included an overview of our facilities and what to expect. Please do let us know if you have any specific requirements at the time of your booking and a member of staff will be in touch.
We have disabled parking spaces in our main carpark, closest to the main entrance. There is a route via a ramp without any steps or obstacles between these spaces and entering the building. There is one obstruction in the courtyard due to our flood gates.
Our reception, bar, warehouse viewing gallery and retail area are accessible. Unfortunately, due to the layout of the distillery there are several steps throughout the tour route, including one staircase of 21 steps, and we do not have a lift. The main production building is not currently accessible for wheelchair users. We are happy to provide an alternative experience for those with accessibility requirements where our guides will talk through the production of our whisky with a sensory kit as an alternative to entering the production building. Visitors can then join the tour to visit our warehouse viewing gallery and water source before returning to the mash tun bar area to enjoy our tastings.
An accessible toilet is available within our reception area. Our facilities include red cords, buzzers, easy use sink taps and handrails. Unfortunately, we do not have accessible changing facilities.
