Carers tickets

In line with best practice in the visitor attractions industry, visitors with disabilities are treated on an equal basis with all other visitors and entry is charged at the appropriate admission category rate - Adult/Concession/Child. Proof of disability is not required.

We recognise that some disabled visitors may need help to visit our sites and we offer free entry for accompanying carers, these can be added when making your booking. Please note this is limited to two carers per transaction.


The level tarmac car park is next to the site.

Visitor centre

The visitor centre is step free.


Main routes around the monument are gravel or grass. The grass is well maintained, but is naturally firmer during dry weather.

There are numerous archaeological remains within the grass, which can be difficult to see.

Some rooms have a step at the threshold, but these aren’t on main circulation routes.

The gatehouse is up a stone spiral staircase with no handrail. Steps are uneven and light levels can be very low.


Nearest adapted toilet is about seven miles away at:

Ayr Central Shopping Centre


Assistance dogs are permitted at all our sites and within roofed areas.  

Visitors' dogs are allowed at Crossraguel Abbey, but are not permitted in roofed areas. 

Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times and not left unattended at any time. Owners must pick up after their dogs
