Assistance Dogs
The new Equality Act 2010 protects anybody
who has or has had a disability and people
who experience discrimination because they
are linked or associated with a disabled person.
In respect of assistance dogs the law quite clearly
states that to refuse admission to a registered
assistance dog is now unlawful and constitutes
discrimination under the Equality Act 2012 under
three possible categories: 1: discrimination arising
from a disability; 2: indirect discrimination and
3: disability harassment. VisitScotland is
committed to equality of opportunity and is
working through its Accessible Tourism Project to
educate and inform all our customers about the
requirements under the law. We have encouraged
all our business customers to use the assistance
dog symbol in order to comply with law, or make
it clear in a statement that they welcome all
assistance dogs. It is always advisable to check
with each establishment prior to booking.

20 For further information on accommodation and exploring Scotland, go to www.visitscotland.com

v Hearing Loop
Induction loop and infrared systems help people
with hearing loss hear more clearly by reducing
the effect of background noise. When a building
has been fitted with a loop or infrared system, you
will usually find this mentioned in their adverts,
newsletters and at the entrance to the building.
Informative signs and symbols should be displayed
such as the loop sign above, it is always worth
asking if it is not obvious. Please note this icon
is not verified by VisitScotland Quality and
Standards Department.

Help us keep Scotland special!


Wherever we go and whatever we do, we have an impact - make sure its a positive one. Here are 5 tips on how you can help to
protect Scotlands environment and support our communities. Thank you.

1 Reduce, Reuse, Recycle


Its important to try to reduce waste and recycle as much as possible. You can help by saying no to bags and packaging you dont need, and using the
recycling banks youll find in many places across the country.

2 Eat Local, Buy Local, See Local


Scotlands communities have lots to offer, from events, crafts and farmers markets to local cafes and tearooms. Ask whats in season and youll be surprised
and delighted by our rich larder of fresh Scottish produce.

3 Chill Out - Switch Off!


Help us reduce light pollution, energy use and carbon emissions by switching off lights and standby buttons when you dont need them.

4 Get Out of the Car!


Take public transport, hire a bike, or dust off your walking boots and discover some of the fantastic places to be found right on your doorstep!

5 Go Wild About Nature


Enjoy our outstanding landscapes, including national parks and nature reserves, and experience some of Europes best wildlife from coast to countryside.
But wherever you go, take care by treading lightly to avoid disturbance and taking away your rubbish.
