Author’s support for new guide
“TRIP Advisor with wheels on”– that is how Rebus author Ian Rankin, parent of a young adult wheelchair user, has described a new guide to Fife.
The Fife-born crime writer has given his support to Euan’s Guide, a charity website used by disabled people to review, share and discover accessible places to visit.
The group’s latest project features a range of accessible locations, from the home of golf to sandy beaches and fishing villages.
The Fife guide, the third in an Accessible Highlights series, is free to download.
It is being promoted with a series of digital postcards showing just how accessible the region is for disabled visitors.
They feature snapshots of Euan’s Guide ambassadors stopping off at three of Fife’s most iconic locations — St Monans, St Andrews and Kingsbarns Distillery.
Members of the public are being encouraged to download the guide, visit locations, and share their own images with the hashtag #Postcardsfromfife.
Part-funded by Visitscotland, it follows the two previous guides, which covered Scottish castles and battlefields and Dundee.
Euan’s Guide was founded in 2013 by powerchair user Euan Macdonald, who has motor neurone disease, and his sister Kiki.
The pair had been searching for recommendations for accessible places to visit, only to realise the information didn’t exist. Their website now features thousands of reviews and listings.
