Edinburgh Castle is a well known landmark in Edinburgh, and is the most visited attraction in the city with over one and a quarter million visitors a year. Aswell as housing the Crown Jewels and the National War Museum of Scotland it is also the venue for the annual Edinburgh Royal Tattoo which is a celebratory military show combining displays from the Royal Marines, Massed Bagpipes and Drums and Scottish Dancing. Military gymnasts and performers from around the world perform energetic displays of strength, agility, flexibility, balance, grace and co-ordination. If those days are sadly passed for someone you love and you would like to keep them safe and balanced, especially on the stairs, then the timely purchase of a stair lift can help them stay in their own home independently, before the dangers of a potential fall become present. Call us on 0131 242 0046 or 0800 007 6959 for free to get started.

The Castle grounds which contain the Mons Meg, the Great Hall, St Margaret’s Chapel viewpoint, the National War Museum of Scotland, the Scots Dragoon Guards Museum, Crown Square, the Crown Room, Scottish National War Memorial and a restaurant and shop have some limited wheelchair access and wheelchairs are freely available from the castle but because of the inclined cobbles it is hard work to push uphill. It's not hard work rising uphill on a stairlift no matter how steep the steps and Castle Comfort can help anyone searching for Stairlifts Edinburgh. The military prisons, St Margaret’s Chapel, Queen Mary’s Room, King’s Dining Room and Crown Jewels exhibition are all unsuitable for wheelchair access, unlike Castle Comforts Mobility Showroom which is fully accessible to the disabled and elderly and is Disability and Equality Act 2010 compliant.

Castle Comfort Stairlifts offer you access to a huge choice of 31 different types of stairlift, so don't be limited to just one, especially one you have never heard of. Castle Comfort sell top brand stairlifts such as Stannah Stairlifts and at keen prices with fast installations.

An example from the Stannah range of stairlifts for those customers in the Edinburgh area is the Sofia Stairlift.

Available in a choice of 12 coloured upholsteries, the Stannah Sofia stairlift has options of leather, woven fabric or vinyl seat coverings, and in straight stairlift form the Sofia stairlift rail can be a silver or a bronze colour giving you an assurance that the stairlift will suit your home. If it is to be a curved stairlift the twin rails come in a choice of 6 colours with the pearl finish being the standard one. If you fold the arm, the seat and footrest both fold away flush, so that other people can use the stairs without obstruction. The control pad can be installed on to the left or right arms and is easy to operate, even for those with arthritis. The seat height and the arm rests can both be adjusted so that it is virtually tailor-made to your measurements. Just like in some cars that have a seatbelt warning sensor built into the seat the Sofia stairlift won't start moving until your sitting safely in it. Wall controls at the top and bottom mean that someone else can operate it on the riders behalf. With a swivel seat a simple lever allows the rider to get off the chair easily, and for an additional charge this can be made into a powered swivel that will turn on the landing automatically on reaching the top. All in all the Stannah Sofia is a well made 2 year guaranteed model that can also be bought as a reconditioned stairlift at a cheaper price and is also available on a rental plan. Phone us for details on 0131 242 0046 or 0800 007 6959

Aswell as the Castle, Edinburgh also has the Royal Mile, which is lined with a mixture of whiskey distilleries, snug pubs and kilt shops. With a cobbled street and mainly Georgian buildings it has a historic and picturesque character to it. It's also one of the best places along here to get your haggis, neeps and tatties. Aye it's a tasty treat.

Princes Street is the best shopping street in Edinburgh and has the highest shop rents of anywhere outside London. With several large department stores it attracts many tourists and locals aswell. It is lined on one side by stores, but the other side, it's South side, is protected from development so that the wonderful views of the Old Town, Princes Street Gardens and the Castle can be maintained.

Edinburgh is host to the annual Edinburgh Fringe which is the worlds largest arts festival and runs for the whole of August. Attracting performing artists from around the globe in 2009 there were over 18,000 performers from 60 different countries. It has been the springboard for many well known comedians such as in the 60's various members of the Monty Python team, Dudley Moore and Peter Cooke, and in the 1980's Rowan Atkinson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie and Emma Thompson appeared as students here. More recent comedy performers to have been 'discovered' at Edinburgh include Rory Bremner, Jenny Eclair and Steve Coogan.

  1. Castle Comfort could be ideal for installing a stairlift at Edinburgh Castle!

  2. I live on the fifth floor of an apartment block in the city, which has a lift that runs to the first four floors. Would you be able to install a stairlift on the last flight of stairs as long as I got landlord permission and any planning that may be required?

  3. Yes of course. We have lots of stairlifts installs like this especially in Spain In the UK, Stairlifts are classed as temporary fixtures, not structural- so landlord permision is often not required - but is polite to get it. Especially if there are other users of the stairs. Planning permission neither is likely - but on survey we'll advise accordingly.

  4. Can stairlifts be dangerous? And are there more incidents of accidents in Scotland that anywhere else in the UK?
