The world-renowned 'Home of Golf' is a town steeped in history and is undoubtedly a gem in Scotland's crown. But are there any accessible walks for those with disabilities or reduced mobility?


There is a large carpark at the famous 'West Sands' beach which runs alongside one of the golf courses that attracts so many tourists every year. The car park is a pay and display, however it is free for blue badge holders and there are number of bays to accommodate us.

You need a radar key to access the disabled toilet which is situated at the entrance to the carpark. If you find the toilet unsuitable or you are unable to access it for some other reason, there is an accessible toilet in the British Golf Museum - which is on the ground floor of the building that overlooks the carpark. There is a third accessible toilet behind the dunes that divide the beach from the road/path. The modern wooden hut that houses the toilet is next to another building where beach wheelchairs are stored.

Yes you read that right... beach wheelchairs!

There are 6 wheelchairs and they are available to rent for free. You can find information on how to book here..

The video below covers the stroll that runs adjacent to the world-famous Old Course: it eventually leads to a bird-watching platform, overlooking the estuary and Tentsmuir.

Thanks very much for taking the trouble to post all this information. It's really helpful for when it's safe to go out and about again.

I did the snowdrop trail at Cambo a year past February and gave feedback to the staff on the paths, facilities etc. Haven't been back due to lockdown so unsure whether they've taken my feedback on board but am confident they were genuinely happy to get the feedback and pledged to sort out the glitches.
