The car park on the mainland:
- has 16 bays for general use
- is rough tarmac
Approach to site
A small motor boat ferries visitors to and from the island. Visitors to Inchmahome Priory must be able to climb into and out of the boat.
Entry to the boat shed is over a low wooden threshold. The pier has uneven stone paving.
This is reached by an uneven stone jetty and up two shallow steps.
The island is relatively level, but the main routes around it are:
- not surfaced
- rough and uneven
- broken up in places by tree roots and large stones
The routes around Inchmahome Priory are grass and gravel. These are firmer during periods of dry weather.
The nave is entered via a low threshold. The thresholds to the cloister are taller (10cm).
Visitors with limited mobility:
- can view about half of the church, cloister and refectory areas
- may be unable to enter the presbytery, sacristy and warming house
The large, open area around the priory gives good views of the buildings.
The toilets by the reception area are up five earthen steps.
An accessible toilet is on the mainland, at the Lake of Menteith Hotel.
Please note, the water supply on the island is unsuitable for drinking. Hand sanitiser is available.
Assistance dogs are permitted at all our sites and within roofed areas.
Visitors' dogs are allowed at Inchmahome Priory, 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.
