Sightseeing with disabilities
I am planning my family's first trip Scotland. We will be there for a couple of week this coming April. I am disabled and I was hoping to get a bit of advice for sightseeing some of the majestic landscapes and castles. We will not have a car, but we are happy to take public transportation or hire a car. As for my disability, I can walk and I can even be on my feet most of the day so long as I have some resting points. But I cannot manage rugged terrain or extensive climbing/hiking. Some uneven terrain is ok. I could walk probably a mile or so, maybe two, on a dirt or rock path if needed, but I can't go too far off the beaten path unless I can get there via some sort of transportation.
So here is my question. Where is the best place for me to go and see some of those amazing landscapes, considering I am not fully abled to go everywhere?
I would really appreciate some advice and recommendations.
