Respite & Accessability
The Centre can be used for respite for people who require time away either with a carer or on their own. (Sorry, the Centre does not provide carers, although we can put you in touch with organisations who do).
The Centre is accessible in different ways. We have a disabled friendly door opener on our main entrance and the centre has built in internal ramps and wide corridors.
We have just completed refurbishment of our chalet which is now a fully accessible self-catering apartment with 3 en-suite bedrooms ( 2 ambulant disabled & one wheelchair en-suite), a living area with lots of room to manoeuvre and a disability adapted kitchen with rise & fall worktop. The new chalet can be rented as a self-contained unit or the bedrooms can be used for B&B or for group accommodation as required. Please follow this link to see more: Chalet
We completed the next renovation project in February 2015, which was to convert our remaining ground floor bedrooms into wheelchair en-suites. These rooms are now available for B&B and group holidays so please phone to book your place.
Twin & family rooms are available & rooms with double beds. We have a small lounge on the ground floor and our spacious dining room serves as a multi-purpose room, so can be used as meeting or activity space as well as somewhere to eat. For a larger meeting space the adjoining renovated Baptist church is available by agreement and can seat up to 130. All the chairs are movable and there are also tables available.

Special diets can be catered for and we can help plan your stay to include disabled friendly activities including wheelchair friendly walks due to our knowledge of the local area. We have bed raisers, commodes, a wheeled zimmer and 2 wheelchairs to lend if needed. Pitlochry Shop Mobility can provide electric scooters if required. Invoices can be sent to funding bodies and local authorities.
