Rebecca Cottage wins award

Rebecca Cottage has been awarded the 'Rod McFarlane Award for 2015' by Angus Access Panel.

Each year the Award is presented to buildings or facilities in Angus which demonstrate the best examples of positive efforts being made to encourage the inclusion of disabled people. 4 buildings were nominated this year.

Rebecca Cottage is our adapted, wheelchair accessible holiday cottage in Carnoustie. We offer subsidised rates for all SBH Scotland members and a reduction for any blue badge holders.

The design and improvements which led to our nomination included the installation of a stair lift and the more recent installation of a specialist tracking hoist from the ground floor bedroom to the bathroom.

Angus Access Panel said,

"Rebecca Cottage is a first class example of how design and equipment can be combined to fully facilitate a building for the use of families with a disabled person to use for holiday accommodation."

Lynne Fenton, Agnes Mackay, ALec King and David Dewar present the Rod Macfarlane award
