Tactile Guidebook Main Page

The tactile guidebook’s main purpose is to provide people with an impression of the physical arrangement of the key areas of the Holyrood site prior to their visit. There are five areas that have tactile maps in the guidebook.

On some pages, we include tactile drawings of key architectural features and objects related to the political purpose of the building.

The guidebook is A3 in size (297 mm × 420 mm or 11.7 inches × 16.5 inches) and has 6 pages. The prototype book is printed on Zychem swell paper.

Given that there is no formal agreement on tactile symbols or page arrangement, we have added a user guide page (with Mp3 audio file) to this website and Mp3 audio files to each sub page.

We send this information on CD (compact disc) with the tactile guidebooks and can send it separately if requested.

We are happy for individuals and educational or charity bodies to reprint the tactile guides for their own use.

Commercial use of these files is not allowed and all work is the property of the Scottish Parliament.
