Au­thor’s sup­port for new guide

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - COURT REPORTS -

“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.
