All main public areas, The Orangery and The Ballroom are all easily accessed.

On Balbirnie’s lower floor however, due to the architecture and layout of the Grade A Listed building, access to The Balbirnie Bistro and The Balbirnie Business Centre involves navigating a minimum of 6 steps, without ramp access. (From site investigations, ramp access cannot be established due to the physical angle of the stairs within the architecture itself.)

In terms of bedrooms, we do not have a lift to the upper floors of bedrooms. We do however have 7 bedrooms on the lower floor, and 4 of these are accessible without crossing any stairs, please bear in mind for room allocations.



Please note that The Blue Badge Scheme is not within Balbirnie House Hotel car parks. Parking charges are applicable.

BRAND NEW (non electric vehicles) 2024 DISABLED PARKING

Drive up the Balbirnie driveway, and past Balbirnie House. Turn first left, and drive onwards to the fully paved car park located to the immediate west of the house. This is in the image top left.


As well as new ‘smooth roll’ disabled access along the southern elevation of Balbirnie House (and then into the hotel via ramp access), this also fully enables new disabled access to our southern lawns as well.


We are absolutely delighted to have delivered totally new capabilities for the combination of disabled parking and electric vehicle charging. For those who are familiar with previous disabled parking, these are located at the paved area at the hedge in our front car park. These are now designated only for disabled electric vehicle charging. Two spaces are designated as Bays 9 and 10. They are defined and pre-reservable via GoZero App.

We point out that these parking spaces are now only designated for charging for electric vehicles.

We also mention that for example, for guests with electric vehicles staying overnight, please feel free to charge vehicles, and then so as to free up ev chargers for other guests, feel free to move charged car and park overnight as per below.

For all non-electric vehicles, for 2024 we are delighted to now offer:

We have now made significant investments so as to change all surfacing along the pathway on the southern elevation of Balbirnie House.

This has changed from previous large pebbles, to new ‘smooth roll surface’, completely changing disabled access.

From our previous two designated disabled parking spaces, this now opens our entire western car park up to complete disabled access.
