I am looking forward to the tattoo and taking my wheelchair bound dad to see this spectacle. However, the information about uplifting a disabled person from the Esplanade is very very sadly lacking...a disgrace almost! All the infor I can find on the net (and from the Tattoo`s own website), simply says to "return on instruction of the Police" !!!
I am sorry but my telepathy and ESP is sadly lacking these days...lol
I have looked up the road closure information for Edinburgh Council and see what roads are closed for the tattoo. Thats fair enough, they have been doing it for years.
My query is that I will be parking at the Castle Terrace car park. I have my Disabled Pass for the tattoo for that day.
Is it a case of approaching from the Grassmarket area 30 minutes after the end of the event, driving up to the George the somethingth bridge at Lawnmarket/High Street, and waiting in the line of traffic for the police to open a barrier or something?
As I say the return bit to pick up a disabled person is very sadly missing, and I would be obliged if anyone can confirm that this is the correct route to return to the Esplanade?
Many thanks in advance.
