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 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.

Visitor centre

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.
