A group of Scottish veterans with sight loss have enjoyed a day out at Grampian Transport Museum.
The group of 10 former services personnel are all living with visual impairments and are supported by the Scottish War Blinded charity.
They were delighted to be able to engage with the museum’s accessible exhibitions through its “tablet tours” – exploring everything from wartime aero engines to the modern electronic traction age.
Scottish War Blinded outreach worker, Ingrid Penny, organised the outing and praised the efforts staff made in catering for the group.
She said: “Taking the time to engage in conversation is something many of our veterans appreciate, especially those living on their own.
“The museum staff’s descriptions about the exhibitions really brought the stories to life and rekindled memories for the group.
“The layout of the museum is also ideal for those living with sight loss. The walkways are wide and spacious, with bright yellow arrows clearly marking the route.”
Royal Navy veteran, Ritchie Schofield, was one of those on the outing.
The 77-year-old said: “I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and I met a lot of people. The museum staff were full of knowledge.”
Mike Ward, curator of Grampian Transport Museum, said: “We first introduced our ‘tablet tours’ in 2016 following a move to increase levels of interpretation and better access for those with sight loss.”
