Disabled Go Online Director Provides Accessibility

disabledgo‘DisabledGo, the Uk’s leading provider of access information are working in partnership with Perth & Kinross Council and have produced an online access guide featuring detailed access information to over 1,000 public venues across Perthshire. All sorts of venues are covered such as: shops, restaurants, café’s, hotels, tourist attractions, libraries, leisure centres and many more. Every venue featured on the guide has been visited and assessed by a specialist DisabledGo surveyor, trained to bring you the most accurate and comprehensive access information.

So if you want to know…

  • Whether somewhere has accessible parking
  • If there are steps to access a building
  • Whether there’s a hearing loop (and more importantly, if staff know how to use it)
  • If signage and information is clear and available in large print or braille, or
  • If staff receive disability awareness training

All the information is available on http://www.disabledgo.com/organisations/perth-kinross-council/main-2 and is free to use. IT can be viewed on tablets and smart phones so you’ll have access information to hand when you’re out and about and need it the most.’

The Monarch of the Glen at Perth Museum and Art Gallery

The Monarch of the Glen painting will be at Perth Museum and Art Gallery from the 25th November 2017 - 13th January 2018 The Monarch of the Glen is one of the most famous British pictures of the nineteenth century: for many people it encapsulates the grandeur and majesty of Scotland’s highlands and wildlife. Painted by Edwin Landseer, it depicts a monumental and precisely defined ‘royal’ or twelve point stag – a reference to the number of points on its antlers. Many of Landseer’s paintings show interactions between humans and animals, but in this, his most well-known work, a single emblematic creature is viewed in a moment of exhilaration. The Monarch of the Glen became widely admired in nineteenth century, when it was reproduced in prints, and achieved even greater renown in the twentieth century when it was employed as a marketing image for various products, so endowing it with global recognition. The iconic painting was acquired for the nation in March 2017 after a high-profile fundraising campaign. Between October 2017 and May 2018 it will go on show in Inverness, Perth, Paisley and Kirkcudbright. Organised by the National Galleries of Scotland, with support from Scottish Government, the Heritage Lottery Fund, and the Art Fund. Read more →
